DECATUR, Ill. (WAND) -- It was probably the last thing on campus that wasn't blue.

Now that's fixed.

Whenever Millikin athletes return to the Griswold Center, they will be greeted by a brand new floor design -- literally a big blue court for the Big Blue. Most of the real estate covered in blue-stained wood with gray and black trim.

For head coaches Olivia Lett and Mark Scherer, it's about more than just aesthetics: it's a chance to spark energy in the building and offer a more enticing venue to prospective Big Blue recruits.
