Hmm, Yahoo Sports says "No, a loose floorboard didn't cause Armando Bacot's pivotal injury in title game"

The visual evidence seems damning:

The slight movement of the floor, though, is natural, according to sports flooring experts, and "the court's absorption characteristics are by design," according to ... a vice president at Connor Sports, the company responsible for the making and installation of Final Four courts.

"There were no loose floorboards or panels within the court, as confirmed by an expert technician who was present at every game of the Men’s Final Four to ensure the quality and safety of the floor"

 (Shouldn't similar videos of floors buckling be common?)
