Atlanta Will Play Host To All Three NCAA Men's Basketball Championship Games

The NCAA Thusday announced the D-II and D-III men’s basketball championship games will be played in Atlanta on April 7, “the off day between the Division I semifinals and championship game,” according to Tim Tucker of the ATLANTA CONSTITUTION. The NCAA said that “the unprecedented decision to crown the champions of all three of its divisions in the same city on the same long weekend is part of the organization’s grand plan for celebrating the 75th anniversary of college basketball’s national tournament.” Tucker notes starting times have not been set, but the “Division II game will be televised on CBS and the Division III game on CBS Sports Network.” NCAA Dir of Public & Media Relations Erik Christianson said that “only the championship games in those divisions will be played in Atlanta.” Christianson added, “Both divisions will need to adjust the formats” of their tournaments, and the D-II and D-III basketball committees will meet “to decide how to best accommodate the change in format” (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 5/11).
