DALLAS - Conference USA Commissioner Judy MacLeod announced Monday the renewal of the 2020 and 2021 league men’s and women’s basketball tournament at Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas.

The decision to extend CUSA’s agreement with the facility was voted on by the league’s athletics directors and presidents/chancellors.

The University of North Texas, the Dallas Cowboys and Visit Frisco will continue to serve as tri-hosts for the events.

“We are thrilled to return to Frisco,” MacLeod said. “Last year’s event was very successful, and we made it a priority to build on that foundation and continue our relationship with the Dallas Cowboys.

Jerry Jones, Jr. and his team have been outstanding throughout the entire process.”

The 2019 tournaments will be played there this week. Marshall takes on Rice at 10 p.m. Wednesday in the first round of the men’s tournament. The Thundering Herd women play UTEP at 3 p.m. Wednesday.
