Pac-12 prepares to move tourney to Las Vegas

Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott will formally announce the men’s basketball tournament will move to Las Vegas.
A press conference is scheduled for 11 a.m. Tuesday at the MGM Grand where the tourney will be held.
Scott will make the announcement with Scott Sibella, the president and COO of the MGM Grand, Pat Christenson, the president of Las Vegas Events and Rossi Ralenkotter, the president and CEO of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.
There’s no doubt where the tournament is going, still there’s plenty of questions regarding it’s future. There’s speculation the conference has agreed to a short-term deal with Las Vegas.
It’s also unclear if the Pac-12 will continue to hold the tournament during the second week in March and compete with Mountain West and WAC, which also has tourneys in Las Vegas at that time.
