The most recent addition to the Hump came in the summer of 2017 with the installation of a new permanent floor. The new floor cost $132,000 and replaced the old mobile floor that served Humphrey Coliseum for 15 years. The new court is a Connor VIP II, maple floor and was installed by Sports Floors Inc. out of Memphis.
OTHER NEW ADDITIONS
The new permanent court followed the addition of a new scoreboard in July, 2015. Mississippi State partnered with Daktronics, Inc., to provide an integrated LED high-definition center-hung video display system that includes four main video displays and two ring displays suspended above the court to keep fans informed and entertained throughout every event.
The new scoreboard replaced the one that was added in 2004 thanks to the Henry Mize Foundation, and it was unveiled one year after the men's and women's basketball teams greatly upgraded their locker rooms.
The upgrades to the Richard C. Adkerson men’s locker room and Nusz Family women’s locker room were complete with full kitchens, state-of-the-art lockers with media enhancements, video rooms and team rooms.
