SoCon Tournament Coming to Charlotte

The Southern Conference tournament is headed to the home of the conference's most notable school: Charlotte, NC.

The SoCon tournament will be held next March 4th through 8th in the Queen City. The first two days will be played at Bojangles Arena ... formerly known as the original Charlotte Coliseum. The final two days will be played at Time Warner Cable Arena.

TWC Arena will be scaled-down to hide about 12,000 of the arena's 20,000 seats.

Charlotte is an ideal city to hold the conference tournament as eight of the 12 schools are within 200 miles. With the economy the way it is, having a site that is accessible a great number of fans is desired. It is also the "home" city of Davidson, the most popular team in the SoCon.
