BIG 12 EXTENDS AGREEMENT TO KEEP HOOP TOURNEY IN KANSAS CITY
Published April 10, 1996
The Big 12 men's and women's basketball tournaments will be held in Kansas City through 2000, according to Randy Covitz of the K.C. STAR. Big 12 Presidents ratified the recommendation of AD's by adding two years to the original agreement that awarded K.C. the '97 and '98 tourneys. The '97 women's tournament is contingent on the city making $4M worth of improvements to Memorial Auditorium, but the conference will not require the city to expand Kemper Arena beyond its listed capacity of 17,153 (K.C. STAR, 4/10).
