The Big South announced the format for 2013-15 tournaments, which will be played at Coastal Carolina University’s new Student Recreation and Convocation Center.

All 12 men’s and all 11 women’s teams will convene on South Carolina’s Grand Strand for a week of basketball. In all, there will be 21 games in six days, starting with first-round men’s action on Tuesday, March 5.

The conference presidents and basketball coaches also agreed on a new basketball scheduling format for the 2012-13 season. The league will be split into two divisions:

High Point

Coastal Carolina
Charleston Southern
UNC Asheville.

Teams will play a 16-game schedule featuring home-and-home series against opponents in their own division. Teams will play six crossover games against opponents from the other division, three at home and three on the road.
