|Memphis coach Josh Pastner won't have a home-court advantage for next season's Conference USA tourney.|
The Conference USA Board of Directors on Monday officially moved the 2013 C-USA basketball tournament from Memphis to Tulsa so that its championship game can be played live on CBS in front of 1,500 fans.
That's not exactly true, I guess.
But, just watch, that's exactly what's gonna happen. [...] On one hand, I get the league not wanting to help a school that's on its way to the Big East by allowing Memphis to host C-USA's premier event. But it's likely that Memphis will win the event regardless of where its played, and so why not play it at FedExForum to basically ensure a nice crowd and television presence for the title game?
