NCAA Tournament returning to Memphis in 2021

It will also host the MAAC basketball tournament through 2020.

"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.

The tournament is one of several upcoming big events in the area.

Lowry bounces back, Raptors edge Bucks to even series at 1-1
Raptors: Ibaka started despite a sore left ankle sustained when he stepped on Antetokounmpo's foot in the third quarter of Game 1. So, in the first round of Eastern conference, the Bucks leads 1-0 out of seven games.

The Times Union Center and the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference will host NCAA Division I men's basketball first- and second-round games on March 19 and 21, 2020. 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when it was shifted by the NCAA from Greensboro, N.C., due to the presence of House Bill 2, which has since been repealed.

The TU Center will also host the 2019 Sweet 16 and Elite Eight for the women's NCAA Tournament. "We look forward to working closely with the University of Pennsylvania, PHL Sports and the NCAA in making the 2022 Men's East Regional a great event for everyone".

Quinnipiac's TD Bank Sports Center landed the women's Frozen Four for the second time, having played host to the event in 2014.

Warriors beat Trail Blazers, Wizards defeat Hawks
If you're out there just gonna let a guy say something to you then you probably shouldn't really be out there. The Blazers' starting backcourt accounted for 69 percent of their scoring and made 70 percent of their shots.

The NCAA Division I men's swimming and diving championships will be held at Iowa's Campus Wellness and Recreation Center in 2021, returning to Iowa City for the first time since 2015.

But with a potential home court advantage dangling in front of them in 2022, if they haven't made it back to the tourney by then, it just might be the carrot they need to make their long-awaited return.

The TU Center now serves as the home of Siena men's basketball and the Albany Devils AHL team.

Harden has 37 points, Rockets rout Thunder, Westbrook
Games can not be eschewed and then rescued now vs. formidable opponents. "You have to get the next one", Gibson added. Meanwhile, the Rockets were eighth in the league in rebounding, but just league average getting defensive rebounds.
