In the Fresno State game, there are several shots of the players taken from the ground level. The ceiling above is that of the old Hec-Edmunson Pavilion at the University of Washington. At one point you can even read the name Huskies on the scoreboard signs. Then as the game progresses, the ceiling is shown again, and it is that of the arena in California. See more »
