DESTIN, Fla. (AP) - The Southeastern Conference's basketball tournament is ready to settle down.
And Nashville, Tenn., could be home.
SEC Commissioner Mike Slive says league athletic directors voted unanimously to ``authorize the conference to explore a primary site for the men's basketball tournament.'' Slive stopped short of saying ``permanent,'' but hinted that could change.
Slive says, ``We've been very successful with our permanent site in football in Atlanta. We've been very successful in our permanent site in Hoover (Ala.) in terms of baseball, so the ADs felt it was time for us to explore the possibility of a primary site for the men's basketball tournament.''
The basketball tournament has been played in Tampa, Fla., Nashville, Atlanta and New Orleans over the last five years. It is scheduled for Nashville in 2015, 2016 and 2019. Two years, 2017 and 2018, have not been finalized.
