The American Athletic Conference and Mohegan Sun Arena have agreed to a multi-year agreement for Mohegan Sun to host the Conference’s Women’s Basketball Championship from 2018 through 2020

Probably a good thing. The tournament does well in Connecticut and this at least takes it away from Storrs.

“We are pleased that we are continuing our partnership with Mohegan Sun Arena,” American Athletic Conference Commissioner Mike Aresco said. “Our women’s championship has become the premier tournament in the country, thanks to our terrific fan support and thanks to the outstanding venue and the hospitality of everyone at Mohegan Sun. Our large crowds have enjoyed watching our teams compete, and our student-athletes, coaches and fans look forward to this great event each year. We thank Mitchell Etess, Amber Cox and the staff at Mohegan Sun for their work in making this a special event.”
