A tribal casino in Connecticut is bidding to host the men's and women's basketball tournaments for the new American Athletic Conference.
Notre Dame and Connecticut provided a thrilling final act for the Big East.
"Due to the powerful fan base in Connecticut and the past success of our championship over the past 10 years in Connecticut, consideration of multiple venues in that state makes sense as we work to consider a group of venues across our footprint and secure our future direction," said Danielle Donehew, the Big East's associate commissioner for women's basketball who will continue with the AAC.
"What the Big East has done in women's basketball has certainly raised the level of the game," she said. "It's provided a platform for some teams to grow exponentially and the schools won't forget that."
