Big Ten Moving Hoops Tourney In 2017

Seven teams from the Big Ten Conference have made it to the NCAA Tourney. Let the March Madness begin.
Seven teams from the Big Ten Conference have made it to the NCAA Tourney. Let the March Madness begin.

WASHINGTON DC (LEARFIELD-WSAU) The Big Ten Conference will apparently move its men's basketball tournament out of the Midwest in 2017.  Commissioner Jim Delany is expected to announce the change today at the Verizon Center in Washington D-C, where the league tournament could be held three years from now.

 The move would be part of the Big Ten's effort to have a physical presence on the East Coast, as Maryland and Rutgers join the conference this fall.  The Big Ten men's and women's basketball tournaments have alternated between Chicago and Indianapolis for almost two decades.  

Yesterday, the Big Ten and Big East announced a men's basketball challenge, similar to the one the Big Ten has with the A-C-C.  Eight games will be played each year, starting in the fall of 2015.  The two leagues agreed to what they called the Gavitt Tip-off Games for at least eight years.
