SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - Greetings from Sioux Falls Arena, where the day's first two teams, Oral Roberts and Western Illinois women, are warming up.
As I said earlier, this is a great venue. The seats are much like the old Memorial Coliseum wooden seats before the new ones were installed years ago.
I ran into Summit League commissioner Tom Douple and asked how long this would be the venue. He said next year, then the tournament rites go up for bid again.
My guess is it's coming back here for another four-year tenure because the interst is so high, which means the attendance is high, which means that's more money for the Summit League.
No signs of life from the IPFW folks so far.
