COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - The basketball arena at the University of Maryland has been renamed the Xfinity Center.

The arena seats nearly 18,000 people. It hosts Maryland men’s and women’s basketball as well as gymnastics, volleyball and wrestling. The athletic department’s administrative offices are also located there.
