FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) - A special guest is spending the summer at IPFW Fieldhouse.

The playing floor used in the NCAA Tournament East Regional at New York's Madison Square Garden was laid down Tuesday. Eventual national champion UConn advanced to the Final Four after beating Michigan State on the floor.

The basketball teams will use the floor for practice and offseason workouts while a new floor is installed at Hilliard Gates Sports Center. The installation is expected to take all summer.
