    PENSACOLA, Fla. – The Sun Belt Conference announced today that the city of Pensacola, Fla., has been selected to host the 2021-25 Sun Belt Men's and Women's Basketball Championships as a part of the league's partnership with Pensacola Sports, in collaboration with the Pensacola Bay Center, Pensacola State College and Visit Pensacola.

    Over the five-year agreement, the conference is set to return to 12-team formats for both men's and women's tournaments. The 2021 Sun Belt Men's and Women's Basketball Championships are scheduled for March 5-8 with first-round and second-round games played simultaneously at the Pensacola Bay Center and Hartsell Arena on the campus of Pensacola State College and semifinal and championship games played at the Bay Center. Both championship games are slated for live coverage with the women's final on ESPNU and the men's final on ESPN or ESPN2.

    Neutral-site tournaments for non-major conferences are utterly pointless.

    Came here to write this exact statement. Tournament games at conference's members arenas would be so much more exciting.

    Makes no sense to go to an area where there are not even any conference members.

    Yep, it's pretty close to the center of the conference from all schools.

    It's also a pretty good area for something other than just the tournament, and it won't get swallowed by the city like it does in NOLA or like it would in Atlanta.

    I don't see what the complaint is. If you're going to do neutral site, it's a pretty good change.

    Pensacola State College?, interesting. Wonder if their planning on becoming Pensacola State University? Down the road maybe a new SB member.
