Marketing meets hardwood at Duke

Proving that there's a market for just about everything that touches a championship team, a company called Victory Courts LLC began Monday selling portions of the Final Four court from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, where Duke edged Butler 61-59 in the NCAA title game last month.

Twelve different sizes and design options will be available throughout the year, including limited edition segments autographed by coach Mike Krzyzewski and seniors Jon Scheyer, Lance Thomas and Brian Zoubek.

Victory Courts donated the center jump circle from the Lucas Oil Stadium floor to Duke, and will be making a financial contribution to the Emily K downtown Durham community center named built in honor of Krzyzewski's late mother.

The gym at the Emily K Center features the court from Minneapolis upon which Duke won the 2001 NCAA title.
