Watching the UCF @ Florida game and seeing the Gators playing on "Belly Donovan" court got me wondering.
"Every day ends with a Tums festival!"

Trivia Question:  Who is the only coach who has 2 D1 courts named after them?
Have some patience, FFS.

Pat Summitt?

I think both the women’s and men’s courts at Tennessee are named for her, though UT-Martin’s could be as well.

Are you counting the Fiserv and the AL as separate courts?

According to this--which is incomplete because it excludes Marquette:
https://forums.rivals.com/threads/college-courts-named-after-coaches.990522/

1. Lou Henson: Illinois and New Mexico State
2. John Wooden:  Indiana State and UCLA
3. Not listed, but I did check out UT Martin, which did name their court after Pat Summit in addition to Tennessee
4. And I'm still going to count the Al and Fisev as two different D1 facilities.

Correct, Both at University of Tennessee and UT-Martin, her alma mater.
Have some patience, FFS.
