Elite Eight coming back to Evansville

Posted: Updated:

It's being called a slam dunk for Evansville and Tri-State sports.

The City of Evansville announced on Wednesday that the NCAA has selected Evansville to host the 2015 DII Men's Basketball Elite Eight and the 2017 DII Men's and Women's Cross Country National Championships.

The City will also be hosting the DII Men's and Women's Cross Country Regionals in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Championships like these bring visitors, money, and prestige to their communities.
