Currently under construction, the new basketball and volleyball playing surface features the school's iconic Mission Church building located in the heart of campus. The school says it's the first to incorporate a campus building into its floor design.
The new Santa Clara floor design was created by Nike mastermind Tinker Hatfield whose work you are probably familiar with if you've ever owned a pair of Air Jordan shoes. Watch below as he talks about how he got his inspiration for the floor's artwork.
Before the new floor design was announced this week, the school was already hard at work dismantling the old floor.
Watch Santa Clara removing its old floor in this time lapse video. The new and improved playing surface should be ready to go in June.
