Badger fan installs the floor for the Final Four in Indianapolis

The Badgers may be a part of the Final Four but Wisconsin has a special connection to the court they'll be playing on when they take on Kentucky.

Bruce Haroldson, a native of Hartland, WI, has overseen the Final Four floor installment, as an employee of Conner Sports, since 2006. 

This is his third time installing a court in Indianapolis.

This year is extra special because Haroldson is a Badger fan and the team is in back to back Final Fours.

\"My daughter is a Badger, my younger daughter went to UW Whitewater, as did I, my wife went to UW Milwaukee, and my father in law is a Badger.\"

Haroldson isn't the only Wisconsin connection to the court, a lot of the wood used comes from Northern Wisconsin.

Though the NCAA picks the colors for the floor, it doesn't hurt that this year it's red, white and black.
