The University of Michigan's basketball team is shooting for a Big Ten title and a long NCAA Tournament run this season. While the Wolverines continue to rack up victories in games, EverLast Lighting could get credited with an assist for helping them on the practice court.

Fifty-six Induction High Bay fixtures manufactured by EverLast Lighting were installed during construction of the university's state-of-the-art Player Development Center, which is attached to Crisler Arena, where Michigan plays its home games. The Player Development Center, which opened in October, is 57,000 square feet and was built at a cost of more than $23 million.

The color rendering index, or CRI, measures how something appears under a certain type of lighting. Lights with a higher CRI give their users increased visual acuity, which means objects are sharper and more defined. EverLast fixtures provide a higher CRI than other lighting options, which benefits members of the University of Michigan men's and women's basketball teams during practice at the facility. BD+C
