The 2021 NCAA Tournament will be held in one location, the NCAA announced Monday.
According to a release, the NCAA staff are in preliminary talks with the state of Indiana and the city of Indianapolis to host the entire 68-team event around the metropolitan area in March and April.
This is a good decision by the NCAA. Keeping the entire tournament in the same area will eliminate travel during the COVID-19 pandemic.
NCAA SVP Dan Gavitt & Committee Chair Mitch Barnhart provide insight into the decision to move the 2021 NCAA Tournament to one geographic area.
