SAN BRUNO, Calif. (AP) -The West Coast Conference tournament is staying in Vegas.
The WCC and Orleans Arena have signed a three-year contract extension to keep the men's and women's conference basketball tournaments in Las Vegas through 2012. It's a significant step for a mid-major league looking to make more of an impact nationally, because the top conferences play their tournaments at neutral sites.
The WCC sold out Orleans Arena this past March for its first tournament not played at one of the conference's eight schools, setting WCC records for both total championship attendance (33,320) and single-session championship attendance (7,845).
