El Paso County Commissioners Court Votes to Guarantee 2014 C-USA Tourney
The C-USA men’s and women’s basketball tournament could be making a return to El Paso in 2014. After postponing the vote for a week, yesterday the El Paso County Commissioners Court voted to guarantee up to $425,000 to attract the tournament in 2014.
The El Paso City Council is expected to make a similar guarantee, and C-USA officials will decide in the near future where to hold the 2014 tournament. El Paso and UTEP are making a strong push for 2014 because that is UTEP’s centennial anniversary. According to UTEP athletic director Bob Stull men’s and women’s games would all be played at the Haskins Center in ’14.
