Oct. 23, 2000
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - The Pacific-10 Conference Chief Executive Officers have approved the establishment of men's and women's post-season basketball tournaments.
The men's tournament will be an eight-team event to be staged at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The women's tournament will be a 10-team event hosted on campus by one of the Pac-10 members. Both tournaments will begin in March 2002.
The Pac-10 previously had a men's tournament following the 1987 through 1990 seasons. It has never sponsored a similar event for women.
