Nashville Selected as SEC Tournament Home

The Southeastern Conference will make a "historic announcement" Tuesday in Nashville.  Music City is expected to be named the primary home of SEC basketball tournaments. 

The Tennessean newspaper reports Nashville will host 12 consecutive postseason basketball tournaments, nine men’s and three women’s, starting in 2015.  The venue will be Bridgestone Arena. 

The SEC played this year’s men’s championship in Nashville and was already scheduled to return in 2015, 2016, and 2019. 

Back in May, SEC Commissioner Mike Slive said the league would explore a primary site for the basketball tournaments, noting success with other permanent sites, in Atlanta for football and Alabama for baseball.
