Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational Brings High-Quality NCAA Hoops to Orleans Arena Nov. 24-25

The Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational, an annual action-packed NCAA basketball tournament, returns to the Orleans Arena Nov. 24 and 25.

The field of competitors includes University of Arizona, Santa Clara University, Butler University, Vanderbilt University, University of Northern Colorado, Bucknell University, Norfolk State University and Sacred Heart University.

Arizona head coach Sean Miller hopes to lead the Wildcats to victory at the Invitational. Arizona enters the tournament with a 25-win season and an appearance at the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship last year. The team’s 92 wins since the 2013-14 season are the third-most in the country.

Santa Clara enters the Invitational with guard Jared Brownridge, the West Coast Conference’s top scorer last season who averaged 20.6 points per game. The Broncos are also led by first-year head coach Herb Sendek, a three-time conference coach of the year with more than 400 career victories under his belt.

The Butler Bulldogs come to Las Vegas after reaching the second round of the NCAA Tournament each of the previous two seasons under head coach Chris Holtmann. The 2016-17 Bulldogs return three starters from last year’s team, including Kelan Martin, who averaged 15.7 points and 6.8 rebounds per game.

First-year head coach Bryce Drew leads the Vanderbilt Commodores into the Invitational with last year’s leading scorer Matthew Fisher-Davis, who shot 44 percent from three-point range to lead the SEC. Vanderbilt finished last season with a 19-14 record and earned a space in the NCAA Tournament.

Each team will play four games – the first two at campus sites and the final two at the Orleans Arena.

The first game of the tournament begins at 11:30 a.m. both days. Two-day ticket packages are available from $50, plus tax and fees, and can be purchased by calling Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000 or online at orleansarena.com.

Pac-12 Announces Agreement to Host Men’s Basketball Tournaments at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas

PAC-12 ANNOUNCES AGREEMENT TO HOST UPCOMING
MEN’S BASKETBALL TOURNAMENTS AT NEW T-MOBILE ARENA IN LAS VEGAS
 

Three-Year Agreements with T-Mobile Arena and Las Vegas Events Announced 

The Pac-12 has reached an agreement with T-Mobile Arena and Las Vegas Events to keep the Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Tournament in Las Vegas for the next three years, the Conference announced today. The tournament will be played in T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas’ newest sports and entertainment venue being developed by joint venture partners AEG and MGM Resorts International and set to open April 6, 2016. 

The Pac-12 originally brought the tournament to Las Vegas in 2012 after more than a decade in Los Angeles. Last year, the Pac-12 extended its agreement to host the 2016 tournament in Las Vegas, and now the Pac-12 has committed for the next three years.

The season-ending conference championship tournaments in Las Vegas have drawn great attendance over the four years at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, culminating with a sellout of all sessions this year, and provided an exciting experience for Pac-12 student-athletes and fans. 

“In only four years, we have created one of the very best post-season tournaments in all of college basketball here in Las Vegas,” said Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott. “Our fans have responded, the atmosphere has been electric, and our student-athletes have really enjoyed playing in front of great crowds. We are now thrilled to build on our success in the state-of-the-art T-Mobile Arena and deliver a world-class experience to more Pac-12 fans.”

This year’s tournament continues tonight at 6 p.m. PT at the MGM Grand Garden Arena as the top four seeds – Oregon, Arizona, Utah, and California compete in the semi-final round. The 2016 championship game will take place tomorrow night at 7 p.m. PT with the conference title and an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament on the line. 

Dan Quinn, general manager of T-Mobile Arena, said, “T-Mobile Arena is thrilled to be the new home of the Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Tournament in Las Vegas.  Over the last four years the Las Vegas community and college basketball fans nationwide have watched the tournament grow in popularity and we look forward to continuing its success as we showcase the city’s newest sports and entertainment venue.”
T-Mobile Arena will seat nearly 18,500 Pac-12 fans for the tournament and offer an unparalleled fan experience. The venue is scheduled to host more than 100 events annually including UFC, boxing, college basketball and other sporting events; major headline entertainment, awards shows and special events.  The newest landmark, located on the Las Vegas Strip, will have a significant impact on the city’s entertainment landscape while providing Las Vegas visitors and the local community a guest experience second to none.

Dan Beckerman, president & CEO, AEG, said, “T-Mobile Arena, which is being created to present the most important sporting events, concerts, awards shows and special events will be the perfect setting to host the always exciting and newsworthy Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Tournament.  When we first began to discuss events we wanted to bring to the arena with our joint venture partners MGM Resorts, the Pac-12 Tournament was at the top of our list.  Together with the Pac-12 and Las Vegas Events, we believe we can further raise the profile of the event to even greater heights in 2017 when we begin to call T-Mobile Arena the home of the Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Tournament.”  

In addition to the agreement with T-Mobile Arena, the Pac-12 re-upped its partnership with Las Vegas Events (LVE) for three years.  LVE has been a champion of bringing the best college basketball tournaments to Las Vegas and has been a valuable partner for the Pac-12 since its move to Las Vegas four years ago.

Pat Christenson, president of Las Vegas Events, said, “Las Vegas is committed to hosting high-profile championship events each year, and the extension with the Pac-12 Conference through 2019 is representative of that vision.  The Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Tournament brings great energy and enthusiastic fans to our destination.  Through this partnership, Las Vegas will continue to work with the Pac-12 to create a unique atmosphere for fans, while providing an outstanding venue for student-athletes to pursue excellence on the court.”
