SBC championship to be at Hot Springs again

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - The Sun Belt Conference basketball championships will return to Hot Springs next March, this time with all of the tournament games to be played here.

The 2009 Sun Belt tournament was also staged here, but with the first round of games played on campuses of conference members before the action moved to Hot Springs.

But beginning March 6, all 13 teams in the league will gather for the 2010 tournament, including the first-round games, according to an announcement Sunday from conference headquarters at New Orleans. The championship games are scheduled for March 9.
