The Matthew Knight Arena, new home to the Oregon Ducks, features a court designed to make it seem like you are standing in a fir tree forest.

Tinker Hatfield designed Kilkenny Floor and said he wanted to pay tribute to Matthew Knight, Pat Kilkenny and the Pacific Northwest, specifically the “The Tall Firs,” the nickname of the school’s 1939 national championship team. The new stadium is set to open for the Ducks’ men’s team on Jan. 13.
