LAS VEGAS (AP) -The Western Athletic Conference is moving its season-ending women's and men's basketball tournaments to Las Vegas.
The deal announced Wednesday puts the tournaments at the Orleans Arena in 2011 and 2012. The arena is next to the Orleans hotel-casino just west of the Las Vegas Strip.
WAC Commissioner Karl Benson says he thinks Las Vegas will be a neutral site for the conference championships.
Benson and Boyd Gaming Corp. chief executive Keith Smith say they haven't decided whether the Orleans casino sports book will accept wagers on the tournament games.
