Last week, the Western Athletic Conference Board of Directors determined that the men’s and women’s basketball tournaments will be at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas for the 2014 season.

The tournaments will be held March 12-15. The winner gets an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. UTPA joins the WAC on July 1.

The championship schedule for the other sports were also set. With the possible exception of baseball, which does not have a site yet, none of those tournaments will be held at UTPA.

In addition, the board is said it is hoping to launch a digital network and that it will have a new marketing/branding campaign.
