Brennan: Protect Ya Neck
Conference USA's decision to strip Memphis of hosting the conference tourney in 2013 actually makes sense, Eamonn Brennan writes. Blog
The league announced Monday that both the men's and women's conference tournaments will be held in Tulsa next season. The men's games will all be played at the BOK Center downtown, where the women's semifinals and championship game will also be played.
The earlier rounds in the women's tournament will take place at the Tulsa Convention Center.
Tulsa last hosted the Conference USA tournaments in 2010, and El Paso hosted them in 2011.
Memphis had hosted the tournaments from 2005 to 2009 and again last season but is moving to the Big East next season.
