Someone on the main board had the idea of giving home games to the higher seeds and only playing the final four in a designated place. I think this is a good idea since the fan bases in this league do not travel and the ones that travel are saving their money and vacation time for the Ncaa tournament.

Yes, this begs the question, does Tubby Smith have one more rebuild in his bag of tricks? While I don't think he's a Hall of Fame coach, he does have a national championship and has usually produced very competitive teams. Let's see what he can do in the next recruiting cycle. He may have, at minimum, a team that could get on a roll in March in front of their hometown fans.
Hopefully. It is in our best interest to have a strong Memphis. I am a little pessimistic, since the Memphis rebuild looks a lot like Micks rebuild(the John Williamson days). There is basically a total roster turnover and the replacements are jucos and last chance guys.

Sure would be nice for uc to host in 2020 with the new arena.

From Kelly Hines twitter. She covers Tulsa apparently.

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