U of I's Assembly Hall now State Farm Center

The only Assembly Hall in the Big Ten is now in Bloomington, Indiana.

Illinois athletic director Mike Thomas announced Monday April 29, that the dome in Champaign immediately will be called the State Farm Center. The insurance company struck a $60 million 30-year deal for the naming rights.

The 50-year-old arena is planned to undergo a $160 million renovation project beginning next spring.
