Floors used on Final Four basketball court were made in Michigan

AMASA (WKZO) -- The Wolverines aren't the only piece of Michigan to take part in the Final Four. A company in the Upper Peninsula makes the floors that are used in NCAA March Madness games.

Sport Court International, in the tiny town of Amasa, produces them for dozens of competitions each year, and Plant Manager Conrad Stromberg says there are certain qualities each one needs. For one thing, the players like them to have good bound. For another, the coaches want them to be safe to reduce injuries.

The floors are made from Michigan maple trees by the Amasa plant's 250 workers. They also made the floors for the Women's Final Four.
