MVC Men's Basketball Tournament to stay in St. Louis

MVC Men's Basketball Tournament to stay in St. Louis

Posted: Updated:
The Missouri Valley conference men's basketball tournament will remain in St. Louis through at least 2018.

St. Louis will host what's become known as "Arch Madness" for the 25th straight year in March. The Valley announced Wednesday that St. Louis has also been awarded the 2016-18 tournaments and that it has an option to extend its deal with the city through 2020.

League Commissioner Doug Elgin says the Valley targeted St. Louis, Kansas City, Chicago, Indianapolis and Las Vegas as prospective host cities before choosing to keep the tournament in St. Louis.

The Valley's stay in St. Louis is the second longest for a neutral site tournament, trailing only the Big East's tenure in New York City.
