Greenville has landed another NCAA men’s basketball tournament.

The NCAA announced Tuesday that Bon Secours Arena, Furman University and the Southern Conference will host the first and second rounds of the 2022 tournament on March 18 and 20.

Greenville hosted the 2017 tournament’s first and second round last month, and was the first site to sell out its tickets. The University of South Carolina, which unexpectedly advanced to the Final Four, and perennial basketball powerhouses North Carolina and Duke played in Greenville.

Other cities hosting the first and second rounds in 2022 are Pittsburgh, Penn.; San Diego, Calif.; Buffalo, N.Y.; Fort Worth, Texas; Milwaukee, Wi.; Cincinnati, Ohio; and Portland, Ore.

Greenville will also host the NCAA women’s basketball regional in 2020.

More details to follow.

  1. 2022?? a 5 year wait??
    That is the reward for being the first location to sell-out?
    wow. thanks to the NCAA for rewarding based on performance and excitement. – said no-one in the state of SC!!

    here is to the state of NC calling the ACC and NCAA on their political arm twisting and to them withdrawing their public schools from the ACC.
    …would love that mess to come to fruition.

  2. This is AWESOME. I know the NCAA decides on venues a few years in advance. (Who knew they plan venues 5 years in advance! ) Seeing these top-ranked teams playing right here in Greenville is an incredible opportunity. You know, if Clemson had a top-10 basketball team, then having the NCAA in Greenville would not be quite as special… just saying.
