SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) A new $19 million arena in Sioux Falls makes its prime-time debut Thursday night with an NBA preseason game.

The Minnesota Timberwolves and the Milwaukee Bucks are christening the new Sanford Pentagon and its 3,250-seat Heritage Court. The 1950s-style setting features a dark parquet floor, side wood bleachers and retro scoreboards.

The Pentagon is part of a 162-acre Sanford Sports Complex built by the Sioux Falls and Fargo, N.D.-based Sanford Health system. The arena will soon serve as home for the NBA D-League's Sioux Falls Skyforce.

Thursday's game also marks the return to South Dakota of former South Dakota State standout and St. Cloud Tech graduate Nate Wolters, who is now a point guard for the Bucks.
