I believe that it is 50/50 if the tournament is at the Palestra next year if the plan will be to move to Brooklyn in 2019. If they decide not to go to Brooklyn, I doubt that it will be at the Palestra next year. Highly unlikely that the Palestra will be the site beyond this year or next year.

Why? It is simply the wrong to have the tournament permanently at the home court of any team. My suggestion to the IL is do the right thing and THINK unlike what you have done so far about the tournament -- location and format. Pretty sad!

Amen, Bradley. As President and Wart Alum DT would say, "SAD!"

We need to think "brand", market share, sell the product to ESPN, and blow smoke up Jon Feinstein's exalted a$$,...(Thank you God and this bottle of tequila in my right hand that I am retired and will NEVER have to attend another meeting and listen to bs like that with a straight face again!).

It can be the wrongest thing that ever happened. But if you can't come up with a suitable alternative venue, it will stay at the Palestra.

I really don't see the league spending $1M to rent out Barclay's for the weekend. And the guess here is that having it at Fordham would dampen the enthusiasm for the event

Thank you Maurice. I'm here through Thursday. Be sure to tip your waitress. (OTOH, my wife requests that you please no longer respond to my "lame attempts at humor," as "that only encourages him.")
