Not a big fan of using a team's home arena for this (yes, I understand the arena is nice), but I do think Memphis is a good spot to hold the tourney, at least as part of a rotation.

Memphis' FedExForum will host the 2019 @American_MBB championship. The 2020-22 sites will be announced in the coming weeks. #TulsaMBB

I believe sites under consideration are off-campus. Arenas in Tulsa, Wichita, Dallas, etc. Memphis/UConn have an advantage with FedEx/XL.

I hope 2020 goes to Tulsa and the BOK Center.

easy access for Tulsa, WSU, SMU, and Memphis...plus, the BOK Center is top notch!

Dont worry. We'll get knocked out in the Quarters.

I'd love to see Johnson, Lomax, and a Sr Jeremiah Martin leading Memphis at FedExForum in the AAC conf tournament...make it happen, Coach Smith!

Great choice. The fan bases from Memphis, Wichita, Cincinnati , SMU and Tulsa should fill Fed Ex nightly . Hopefully we'll never see anything like this again.....

Memphis fans will turn out for decent Tiger teams for AAC Tourney Tiger games, but past experience suggests that other AAC fans will need to attend their games or FedEx will be nearly empty.

03-lmfao

the 2014 AAC tourney where we lost to UConn early-on is the best attended AAC tourney to date...

2014 attendance: 63,636
2015 attendance: 45,480
2016 attendance: 38,871

I see why they want to come back.
