Though the 2011-12 Atlantic 10 men’s basketball season finished just a little over a month ago, with St. Bonaventure claiming the league title, tickets for the 2013 tournament go on sale Saturday.
Atlantic 10 Conference Commissioner Bernadette McGlade also announced that the league will change the format of its championship starting in 2013. Rather than have the first rounds of the tournament take place at campus sites, she said, all 12 qualified teams will travel to Brooklyn to compete. The tournament will still end on a Sunday.
Starting in 2013, the A-10 plans to move its annual men’s basketball tournament to the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., ESPN.com is reporting. The move will be a switch from the tournament’s current location at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J., the site of the upcoming 2012 championship.
