Last year over 40,000 spectators attended the event, setting an all-time Summit League attendance record.
Striking a new five-year deal with the Summit League in 2012, the Sioux Falls Sports Authority will host the Summit League basketball championships through 2017. Included in the agreement is an option to host the tournament for an additional five years, which could allow the tournament to stay in Sioux Falls until 2022.
