Pac-12 signs deal with Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena for men's tourney

LAS VEGAS -- The Pac-12 men's basketball tournament will remain in Las Vegas for three years after the conference reached a deal with the new T-Mobile Arena.

The Pac-12 has played at MGM Grand Garden Arena since moving to Las Vegas from Los Angeles in 2012.

T-Mobile Arena is scheduled to open on April 6 and will have a capacity of nearly 18,500. It will be the site of 100 events annually, including college basketball, boxing, UFC and entertainment acts.

The Pac-12 tournament sold out all four sessions in Las Vegas for the first time this year.

The conference announced the deal on Friday.
