FAU Referenced as Administrative Host for 2010-2011 NCAA Men's Tourney

Nothing is in stone, and this is just "talk" at this point in time, but:

FAU was referenced in a recent PBCSC meeting as a possible administrative host for a round of the 2010-2011 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament.

If it were to happen games would not be held at FAU arena, but FAU Staff would serve as administrative hosts - providing Media Relations functionality and services in combination with the NCAA at a location such as the BankUnited Center or BankAtlantic Center.

Let's hope the opportunity comes to fruition, as it would be a big plus for the program to "get the name out there" by way of a national marketing distribution platform that promotes all participating venues and their hosts.

See below for a similiar function that FIU just recently provided:

When San Antonio hosted the Final Four last year, University of Texas - San Antonio was the "host" school but it was held at the Alamodome.

This would be huge for FAU if it happens.
