In 1987 the Notre Dame Board of Trustees renamed the Athletic and Convocation Center the Joyce Center after Rev. Edmund P. Joyce, C.S.C., who retired as the University#25;s executive Vice President and chairman of the athletic board on athletics just a few months prior. The Joyce Center has served as a site for the NCAA#25;s men#25;s tournament four times (1971, 1976, 1985 and 1988). Beginning in 1994, the Joyce Center underwent a series of renovations.
