UNC Asheville allowed to host Big South title game
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)
Big South Conference presidents have reached an agreement that would allow the UNC Asheville men's basketball team to host the conference tournament championship game.
The highest seed hosts the title game and UNC Asheville currently has the best record in the Big South at 9-1. The game would be played on March 3 at noon.
There had been a potential scheduling conflict with the Southern Conference, which will play its women's postseason tournament at Kimmel Arena - the Bulldogs' homecourt. UNC Ashville was not going to be allowed to host the game, but appealed to the Big South.
The SoCon has agreed to move one of its women's quarterfinal games to the nearby Justice Center and allow the Bulldogs to play at home if they get the opportunity.
