The Basketball Tournament, which organizers hail as "the $2 million, winner-take-all summer basketball event," announced its regional bracket locations on Tuesday, and Columbus picked up a bid.
The fifth annual tournament will come to Capital University in Bexley from July 20-22 for the midwest bracket.
- South – Arthur Ashe Jr. Center Richmond, Va. from July 13-15
- West – Cal State University Los Angeles from July 13-15
- Northeast – Long Island University of Brooklyn, N.Y. from July 20-22
The semifinals and championship game will return to Baltimore, with this year's $2 million game coming at Morgan State University on Thursday, August 2 and Friday, August 3.
Ohio State alumni, who almost took down the tournament last year, are expected to field a team.
