Final Four Floor Originated In Tiny Michigan Town

Posted: Updated:

AMASA, Mich. (AP) - A tiny town in Michigan's Upper Peninsula has once again proven itself to be the go-to locale for hardwood construction.

The floor being used for the Final Four games in Arlington, Texas, on Saturday and the national championship game on Monday was put together in Amasa, a 280-person community in Iron County and a key manufacturing spot for Salt Lake City-based Connor Sport Court International.

Connor has been manufacturing the floors for the Final Four for nearly a decade. It also makes 700 courts each year for the NBA, schools, gyms and colleges.

The wood for this year's court came from the U.P., by way of Timber Products Co.

The floor consists of 350 4-by-7-foot panels. The weight of the court is 62,300 pounds.
