Tulsa gets 2013 Conference USA hoops tournament

Conference USA has announced plans to hold its postseason

basketball tournaments in Tulsa in 2013 and in El Paso, Texas, in

2014.

The league announced Monday that both the men’s and women’s

conference tournaments will be held in Tulsa next season. The men’s

games will all be played at the BOK Center downtown, where the

women’s semifinals and championship game will also be played.

The earlier rounds in the women’s tournament will take place at

the Tulsa Convention Center.

Tulsa last hosted the Conference USA tournaments in 2010, and El

Paso hosted them in 2011.

Memphis had hosted the tournaments from 2005 to 2009 and again

last season but is moving to the Big East next season.
