A leaking cracked pipe flooded part of Williams Arena on Thursday. The pipe, turned on for the first time since winter, sprayed water for approximately 45 minutes before being turned off, damaging the men’s basketball locker room and Gophers coach Tubby Smith’s office .

The men’s locker room, which was recently renovated, will have to be once again this summer after the water ruined much of the locker room including the carpet, cabinets and plasma TVs. The women’s basketball locker room was not damaged.
