The BMO Harris Bradley Center, opened in 1988, is the NBA's only arena that was given as a gift. The late Jane Pettit and her husband, Lloyd Pettit, gave the $91 million arena to the city and state of Wisconsin in memory of Jane's late father, Harry Bradley. The exterior features fired granite, the same material used in constructing the pedestals and columns of the two glass-enclosed atriums, according to the arena website. It also is home to Marquette University and the minor-league hockey Milwaukee Admirals. The BMO Harris Bradley Center hosted the Frozen Four NCAA hockey championships in 1993, 1997 and 2006, as well as the NCAA men's basketball regionals in 1992, 1996, 1999, 2004 and 2010.
