MGM Grand In Las Vegas Could Host Pac-12 Tournament Starting In 2013

Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said yesterday that the league will announce the future site of its conference basketball tournaments soon, and that the MGM Grand in Las Vegas was in the running to host the events starting in 2013. Los Angeles and Seattle also are bidding.

“No decision has been made about what we’re doing next year,” Scott told the Associated Press. “We’ve been going through a very extensive request and proposal process.”

The men's and women's tournaments are just finishing an 11-year-run in Los Angeles this weekend, coinciding with the end of their TV deals. The league will announce its plan for future tournaments after a weekend meeting of university presidents and chancellors.

While Scott wouldn’t comment on the cities' bids, he did note that Las Vegas already hosts three college basketball tournaments: the Mountain West on the UNLV campus, and the Western Athletic and West Coast tournaments at Orleans Arena.

“We have not thought a lot about other leagues,” he said. “I think more about TV and what our TV windows would be and how they would match up.”
