“This is a great opportunity for college basketball fans to see March Madness in some of our traditional cities with a long history of hosting the tournament, as well as a couple of new cities that have never hosted before,” said Dan Gavitt, the NCAA’s vice president of men’s basketball. “From major markets to smaller cities, there’s a great chance that America’s best sporting event is going to be played reasonably close to any fan in the country, so it’s a terrific opportunity to come watch history unfold.”
