Raphielle Johnson at CollegeBasketballTalk is reporting that Washington, DC will host the 2018 A10 Tournament.

Back in late March the Atlantic 10 deciding to move its conference tournament from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn in 2017 and 2018 to allow the ACC to move its annual event north, with the A-10 also receiving benefits in non-conference scheduling in the future. What was left to be determined is where the A-10 will play its men’s basketball tournament in 2017 and 2018, and according to multiple outlets a formal announcement will come on Thursday.

Where will those tournaments be held? According to the reports Pittsburgh will host the 2017 Atlantic 10 tournament, with Washington, D.C. getting the honor the following season.

Verizon Center will be the host of the ACC tourney in 2016 and the Big 10 tourney in 2017, before giving the Atlantic 10 it’s turn.
