Indianapolis plays host to the Big Ten Menís and Womenís Basketball Tournaments this March, marking Indyís 10th time hosting the menís championship and the 19th time hosting the womenís championship. The womenís tournament will be held from March 2-6 and the menís tournament will be held from March 9-13.
For Big Ten menís basketball fans, this is the last time to catch the action in Indianapolis until 2020, while the womenís tournament will be back each year through 2022. With the menís and womenís teams from †both Indiana University and Purdue University having good seasons the tournaments should have a lot of Hoosier State fanfare.
Surrounding both tournaments will be a plethora of special events, including the Big Ten Hoops Day 5K, the Big Party, pep rallies and much more. Each Big Ten school is also paired with a downtown restaurant, providing a home base for the teamís fan base. Learn more about the events here.
