The Scouting Report

Myeongji University offers two full size basketball courts. The surface is a green soft top that isn't too hard on the knees. It's tucked away behind a makeshift baseball/soccer field.



Surface

Green soft top. It is a bit patchy in some areas but for the most part, it does the job. Good on the knees but still offers enough bounce.

Pros

If you come on a weekend during the afternoon, you hsould be able to play some pickup. Myeongji also has a small international student body so you might even get some foreigners playing. The competition varies. Usually there are multiple pick-up games goin on, so don't worry about your skill level.

Cons

You won't have much luck with evening games as they rarely turn on the lights. Weekends are your best bet.

Extra Info

There is a water fountain, along with a bathroom, inside the school that is accessible to all.
