CAA moving hoops tournament to Baltimore
The Colonial Athletic Association and the city of Baltimore have a three-year agreement to move the CAA men's basketball tournament to 1st Mariner Arena starting in 2014.
The CAA tourney has been held at the Richmond Coliseum for 23 straight years and will be held there for a 24th year March 9-11 2013.
The Baltimore venue seats just under 12,000 for basketball, similar to the size of the Richmond Coliseum.
The move became attractive after VCU left the conference for the A-10 and Old Dominion will leave after this season for Conference USA.
The move to Baltimore makes the location more centrally located for the remaining and incoming schools.
