It’s official: Sioux Falls will get the Summit League men’s and women’s postseason basketball tournaments beginning in 2009. That’s good and bad news for Bison fans.
The good: it’s a short drive to watch NDSU try and qualify for the Big Dance, which if successful, would be the biggest sporting conquest to hit this town ever.
The bad: Kiss Fargo’s chance to acquire the tournament in the near future goodbye. I can’t see the league keeping the tournament in the north after Sioux Falls’ tenure in 2009 and 2010. Logic would assume it would alternate between a north and south venue, meaning Tulsa would probably get it back in 2011 and 2012. That puts the earliest Fargo would host at 2013.
