NEW YORK – The BIG EAST Women’s Basketball Tournament presented by Jeep will be played at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., beginning in 2021, the Conference announced today. The agreement spans three years and includes the 2021, 2022 and 2023 postseasons. The BIG EAST just completed a three-year run for the event at Wintrust Arena in Chicago, Ill.
The BIG EAST’s move to Mohegan Sun Arena follows the recent readmission of the University of Connecticut to the BIG EAST as a member school. UConn was a charter member of the BIG EAST when the conference was formed in 1979 and formally re-joined the conference on July 1, 2020.
