MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee men's basketball team is moving back to the U.S. Cellular Arena.

UWM and the Wisconsin Center District have reached a 5-year contract agreement.

The Panthers played their 2012-2013 season on campus at the Klotsche Center.

The Journal Sentinel (http://bit.ly/12DVJQw ) says board chairman Frank Gimbel has been working to bring the team back to the arena downtown.

UWM students get free admission to the games and free transportation from campus to the arena.
