Atlantic 10 moving tourney to Brooklyn in 2013



NEW YORK (AP) — The Atlantic 10 will move its basketball tournament to Brooklyn, beginning in 2013. The conference will host its championship in the new Barclays Center, which will also be home to the NBA’s Nets.

The Atlantic 10 has long searched for a steady tournament destination without much success. Since the first one in 1977, it has been held in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Morgantown, W. Va., East Rutherford, N.J., and Dayton, Ohio, among others.

The last five years, it has been held in Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J. It will also be held there in 2012.
