NCAA Tournament: Watch the West Regional floor go down in San Jose

This is cool

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-St. Louis Blues at San Jose Sharks Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The NCAA Tournament’s West Regional is happening in a place where they normally play hockey, the SAP Center in San Jose.

So ahead of Wednesday’s open practices and Thursday’s games, the floor went down, and watching it all come together in 28 seconds is fun.

Thanks to Megan Ebeck, Arizona grad and SAP Center Arena Marketing person for posting this awesome video.

Thursday’s games in San Jose begin at 4:39 PM PT when the Gonzaga Bulldogs take on the West Virginia Mountaineers. 30 minutes after that game ends, the Arizona Wildcats will face the Xavier Musketeers. Both of these games will be broadcast on TBS.
