The 2017 NCAA Tournament First Four officially kicks off on Tuesday evening in Dayton, Ohio, so the eight participating teams have been arriving.
For the Providence Friars, it took little time to get some special treatment.
When the Friars arrived to their team hotel in Dayton, they were greeted by a person bagpipe player.
A little bit random, sure, but a whole lot of awesome. Maybe the folks in Dayton were just getting an early jump on their St. Patrick’s Day celebration.
