This week, the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference announced that the annual MAAC basketball championships will be remaining in Albany, New York for the next three years.
The deal will now extend through the 2019 MAAC championship, after a vote from The MAAC Council of Presidents.
The Times Union Center plays host to the men’s and women’s tournaments.
Last season, the Metro Atlanta Athletic Conference was dominated by the Iona Gaels. Both the Iona men and women brought home their respective conference championships after a hard fought tournament.
The women’s team topped top seed Quinnipiac, 57-41, while the men edged top seed Monmouth, 79-76.
