Final Four: DiGiorno Pizza commercial - Final Four connection

By Eric Sorenson - March 31, 2007

Have you guys seen the pizza TV commercial where Dick Vitale is having a dream of slam dunking and sky-walking over opposing players in a game?

That commercial was filmed in the old Sports Arena that sits next to the Coliseum in Los Angeles. The Sports Arena is notable as the location of the 1968 and 1972 Final Fours. UCLA won both of those titles: 78-55 over North Carolina and 81-75 over Florida State.

To be honest, the place is a real dump too. The crowds for those two final games were 11,492 and 9,207. Guess people just stayed away knowing that UCLA was going to win it again.

USC was the last regular tenent, playing last year at the aged arena, before building the new Galen Center just off campus.
