SEC will look to extend agreement to have league tourney in Nashville

By LARRY VAUGHT

With so much attention focused on what P.J. Washington, Jarred Vanderbilt and Wenyen Gabriel would do about the NBA Draft, it was easy to overlook one news item that came out of the SEC spring meetings recently.

The SEC is going to pursue negotiations to extend its agreement with the city of Nashville hosting basketball championships. The tournament is scheduled to be played there already in 2019-2020-2021.

“We have had a great experience in Nashville at Bridgestone Arena,” SEC commissioner Greg Sankey said. “We look forward to our future there. We have great relationships with the Nashville Sports Council, the Nashville Predators and the Nashville Convention and Visitor’s Corporation.”

Kentucky fans certainly seem to have a “great” experience in Nashville as well, so this would be a move that UK fans certainly would embrace.
