As part of the University of Arizona's $80 million renovation of McKale Center, the Arizona Wildcats' iconic basketball arena is being torn apart today.

Athletic director Greg Byrne tweeted a couple photos this morning.

Check out the huge pile of dirt where the floor used to be.

The facelift of McKale has been in the works since last year and includes the huge new video board that was installed in January.

The Star's Greg Hansen says construction is not likely to be complete until mid-November
