Asheville welcomed the Southern Conference Basketball Championships back to the area in 2012 for the first time since 1995, when the city’s run as tournament host ended after 12 years. The League extended its hosting agreement with Asheville through 2021, which will also be the Southern Conference’s 100-year celebration.
