MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Sweet 16 will be back in Minnesota.

The NCAA awarded a four-year slate of championship events Tuesday to site bidders, and the Twin Cities collected a big haul with the University of Minnesota as the host institution. Target Center will have men’s basketball regional semifinals and a regional final in 2021, two years after U.S. Bank Stadium hosts the Final Four. The last time a men’s basketball regional came to Minnesota was 2009 at the Metrodome.

The soon-to-be-remodeled home of the Timberwolves will also host the women’s volleyball championship in 2018. And the wrestling championships will be held at the recently opened Vikings stadium in 2020, the first non-arena venue for the event.

The Frozen Four for both men’s and women’s hockey will also be in Minnesota in 2018.
