MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Bucks are returning to the place they called home for 20 years to help mark their 50th anniversary season.
 
The Bucks are planning to play a regular season game at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Panther Arena, which was known as the Mecca when the NBA team played there from 1968 to 1988.
 
The date and opponent have not been announced.
 
The Bucks compiled a 582-209 record in their 20 seasons at the 11,000-seat Mecca. In their third season in the building, the Bucks went 34-2 at home and went on to win the 1971 NBA championship.
 
Bucks president Peter Feigin says it will be a "unique and special occasion" for the players and fans.
