CHICAGO (WPTA21) - The 2021 Big Ten Men's Basketball Tournament will take place in Indianapolis, the conference announced on Tuesday.
Officials decided to move the competition to Lucas Oil Stadium from the United Center in Chicago after considering what the conference called "multiple factors":
- Health and safety concerns
- Benefits of having the men's and women's tournaments in the same location (regarding COVID-19 testing)
- Centralized accommodations around the competition venue
The tournament will take place March 10-14, preceding the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, which will happen entirely in central Indiana.
