Greenville Group Back From NCAA Visit

A bid to potentially land the NCAA Tourney back in Greenville, and potentially other NCAA championship events, will be filed online June 6th, Furman Athletic Director Mike Buddie told 7 Sports Thursday.

Buddie was part of a four-person group from Greenville that attended an NCAA symposium this week in Indianapolis at which they gathered ideas plus met various NCAA officials in the city’s push to again serve as an NCAA Tournament site.

The windown of years in the next wave of bids the NCAA will grant is 2019 to 2022.

Buddie adds that in the event other places that have been assigned events between now and 2019 are unable to fulfill their obligation, for any number of reasons, that his group alerted the NCAA that Greenville is ready to stand in.
