NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Southeastern Conference has decided Music City is the place to keep its basketball tournament for years to come, extending its deal with an option that could keep the event in Nashville through 2035.

The league announced the agreement Tuesday to play the tournament in Nashville through 2030 with an option for a five-year extension. The only exception is 2022, when the SEC women's tournament will be played in Nashville and the men's tournament is in Tampa.

SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey says Nashville has proven to be an outstanding home with tremendous support for the tournament. Sankey says the league has had success with deals keeping its football championship game in Atlanta; its baseball championship in Hoover, Alabama; and now Nashville for basketball.
