Memphis To Host '14 American Athletic Conference Men's Basketball Tournament
Published June 12, 2013
LADIES' NIGHT: In Hartford, Altavilla & Gosselin report the AAC has “reached an agreement with the Mohegan Sun Arena to play its inaugural postseason women's basketball tournament at the casino in March.” The tournament will be held March 7-10, and the deal is “for one year with a conference option" for the '15 tourney. XL Center GM Chris Lawrence said that Global Spectrum "might have been handicapped because it has not officially taken over management of the XL Center, though it has been selected for a 10-year contract" (HARTFORD COURANT, 6/12). The AP’s Pat Eaton-Robb noted Mohegan Sun “offers gambling, but does not have a sports book.” The venue “made pitches in the past to host the women's tournament for the American's predecessor, The Big East, but was rejected amid objections from the league's Catholic schools to having the tournament at a gambling venue” (AP, 6/11).
