Virginia Beach arena update
Looks like we have ourselves an arena....

Could this pave the way for a conference tourney bid for VB/Norfolk?

Yup! Was just coming here to post. I've said it before but probably happening this time.

Posted from mobile device. Hopefully it's coherent.

Too far from campus for CUSA's holding both tourneys. I would expect an A10 tourney first, unless that changes.

Is it, though? It would be far from the cozy setup in Birmingham or El Paso but it is two arenas. Virginia Beach could also get creative and put a court in the convention center across the street for the women's tournament.

What about hosting a holiday tournament? That would be cool.

Put a court in the convention center for the womens and host the men at the new arena. I like your idea and sounds like it could be a good way to go.

Also, I know it is a MAJOR pipe dream...but this sports fan would love love love to have an NHL or NBA team locally to root for. Probably will never happen, but a guy can dream.

Harry wrote an article last week and noted that this arena wouldnt fulfill the requirements for a pro team. So, don't even bother getting your hopes up. It may be good enough to get an arena team but nothing more.
