    Dave Cowen played for the Boston Celtics, note how the new floor has a square pattern.

    Make the Thoroughbreds yellow instead of the floor color and it would look good.

    Looks great. Glad to see Cowens steppinh up once more. My favorite line from the article is below.

    NCCHS is most grateful to the Most Reverend Bishop Foys, D.D. and the Diocese of Covington for the support of this project.

    Very nice gesture but that entire gym needs revamped especially the lighting.

    That’s awesome. NCC needed some upgrades. That floor will look great. Did they recently repaint the walls?

    I don't believe he went to St Anthony. He grew up on the Eastside of Newport and was friends with my Dad who also lived on same street (Park Ave maybe) as grade schoolers. I think the A might stand for the old St Anne's that used to sit up on the hill and was torn down for the Newport Pavillion development.
