Hillyard’s Contribution to the Game of Basketball

Posted by Lauren Catron on Mar 21, 2019 8:19:04 AM

 

It’s an exciting time in the sports world as teams across the country hit the court with NCAA® March Madness in full swing. In the spirit of the game, we are stopping to reflect on our own basketball heritage and our contribution to the game of basketball. 

Hillyard’s founding father, Newton S. Hillyard, was one of many that helped propel the game of basketball to what it is today. Yes, while everyone knows the story of Dr. James Naismith, few know the role Newt played to improve the game and safety of the players on the court.

It really all started when Newton’s son, Marvin, approached him to sponsor an AAU basketball team. As Newton agreed, he became more and more aware of the dangers of the slippery, oily floors the teams were playing on, and realized how unsafe they were to the players. He quickly decided to develop wood gym floor coatings that were durable, easy-to-maintain, and offered players a sure-footed playing surface.
