ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — The University of Michigan is getting ready to formally dedicate the Crisler Center after a renovation and name change for the home of Wolverines basketball.

The Ann Arbor school's Athletic Department is hosting events starting Friday that culminate in a Sunday dedication ceremony ahead of the men's basketball game against Penn State.

A "Return to Crisler" event is planned for Friday night. It features a conversation between former Michigan football player and Heisman Trophy winner Desmond Howard and three Michigan basketball greats: Diane Dietz, Glen Rice and Cazzie Russell.

The facility was built in 1967 and had been called Crisler Arena since 1970. The school's governing board made the name change official last year.
