Also a term for any indoor basketball court (such as in all NBA and college hoops arenas).

Hall of Fame guard Bob Cousy was nicknamed "Houdini of the Hardwood" (for his seemingly magical control of the ball) and coach Phil Jackson named his 1996 book "Sacred Hoops : Spiritual Lessons of a Hardwood Warrior".

Presumably, a basketball hardwood is made from some of the types of hardwood that cordelia describes above.
