Earlier this summer, UTEP athletics announced that the Don Haskins Center court would receive a redesign prior to the basketball season. This past week, the athletic department unveiled the brand new floor that features the signature Franklin Mountains and the star on the mountain.

The new court was finished in almost three months since the announcement. Check out the timelapse that was posted, which highlights the entire construction process.

Besides the eye-catching Franklin Mountains and star, the court includes more Miner additions that fans will get a chance to check out this year. On the top left of the court, legendary coach Don Haskins' signature is placed along the out-of-bounds area. On the opposite side of Haskins' signature, the phrase "Glory Road" is placed on the court to honor the 1966 Texas Western National Championship team.

The new redesign was made possible thanks to a $100,000 donation from the Cardwell Family, as announced by UTEP on May 11.

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.
