Times Union Center to host men's and women's NCAA Tournaments

NCAA prepares to announce tournament sites

The NCAA also selected Cedar Rapids as the host for its Division III baseball finals from 2019-22, its Division III women's volleyball tourney in 2019 and its Division III wrestling finals in 2020 and 2022.

"We are very excited to serve as the host for the 2019 NCAA Regional Championship with our partners at Verizon Center", Georgetown Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Lee Reed said. "Community matters is a core value of Penn Athletics, and hosting events like this, along with the Penn Relays and the inaugural Ivy League Basketball Tournaments, provides the opportunity to bring sports fans together in Philadelphia". Greenville hosted the event this past season, when it was shifted by the NCAA from Greensboro, N.C., due to the presence of House Bill 2, which has since been repealed.

It's been 60 years since Penn last hosted the East Regionals in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, when the Palestra saw March Madness played out under its roof for four straight years in 1954-57.

Arkansas vows to keep pushing for executions despite setback
The original plan was to double the executions over four nights, prior to the state's supply of lethal injection drugs expired. The legal issue that halted Monday's executions for Ward and Davis hinged on a separate, broader case pending before the U.S.

"I think really you're only good as your last event", Higgins said.

The University of Pennsylvania hosted the first NCAA East Regional in 1939 at the Palestra. The eventual NCAA champion played in Memphis and FedExForum two of the previous three times the city and arena hosted a regional. The city will host its third women's Final Four in 2019 and the SEC men's basketball tournament in 2022.

The state of CT will play host to several prominent events in that time frame, most notably in women's hockey and men's lacrosse.
