A Tricked-Out Basement for 2 College Basketball Super Fans
As the NCAA men’s basketball Final Four tournament ramps up this weekend (April 6-8), you might be considering yourself a committed sports fan. But chances are, you’ve got nothing on Tommy and Renee Owen. They’ve tricked out their 1,450-square-foot basement with all things dedicated to Tommy’s alma mater, North Carolina State University.
Countless pieces of memorabilia cover red walls (NC State red, of course), and the school’s block-S logo and its iconic wolflike mascot, Tuffy, show up on the carpet, rugs, pool table, bar stools, movie theater seats and more. “It basically looks like NC State exploded in my basement,” Tommy says. “But in a classy way.”
