LINCOLN — The Nebraska volleyball team will open defense of its national championship this fall on a new Devaney Center court design, and the program is asking fans’ help in picking a winner.

Wednesday, the Huskers asked fans on its Twitter account to pick from among five court designs in an online poll. Though the final choice for a court design will ultimately be made by head coach John Cook, an NU athletic department spokesperson said the fan vote will factor into the court design chosen.

The new floor will replace the current surface that has been used since 2011 and is starting to show signs of wear. Prior to 2011 the team played on a hardwood floor at the NU Coliseum before switching to the current Teraflex surface made by Gerflor. Teraflex is a shock-absorbing surface that is now standard in international volleyball and has gained popularity among college programs over the last few years.

Fans have until 5 p.m. Friday to choose from five different designs.

1. Natural wood court surrounded by red with a red N at the center. NEBRASKA written in white letters at each end.

2. Natural wood court surrounded by red with a white N at the center. NEBRASKA written in white letters at each end.

3. Natural wood court surrounded by red. At midcourt, a darker wood color surrounds a natural wood-colored N. NEBRASKA written in white letters at each end.

4. Natural wood court surrounded by red. At midcourt, red surrounds a white N. NEBRASKA written in white letters at each end.

5. Red court surrounded by black with a white N at the center. NEBRASKA written in red at each end.

The floor designs were created by NU’s in-house Capital Planning department.

The final results of the fan vote likely won’t be made public, according to an NU athletic department spokesperson, however the program will probably share the top three vote-getters from which Cook will make his choice.
