UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Elected officials have joined sports luminaries to celebrate the announcement of a $229 million renovation project at the aging Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

Light heavyweight boxing champ Bernard Hopkins spoke of the likelihood championship bouts could one day be held at the Long Island arena.

Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari says college sports also could find a home at a renovated coliseum.

The New York Islanders plan to move to Brooklyn after the 2015 season. But they'll return for six games a year under the renovation plan announced this week. One of their stars, Matt Martin, represented the team at Friday's event.

County Executive Edward Mangano has chosen a group headed by developer Bruce Ratner to oversee the renovation.
