The Las Vegas Sun is running a story today saying "there are rumors the West Coast Conference (can you say Gonzaga?) and Western Athletic Conference are interested in the Orleans' neutral hardwood, although [Steve] Stallworth [who apparantly runs the Orleans Arena] wouldn't confirm or deny it."

Last January BZ started a thread that suggested to me that this was already a done deal:

:confused: Anyone know what gives?

"It is looking more and more likely that the WCC Tournament will be a permanent fixture in Las Vegas"--

I have a hard time taking a done deal from BZs initial thread--Especially if another conf. got into the mix.

It sounds to me like they are looking into it-- I am sure the WCC will issue a press release if/when it is a done deal.

I think the Orleans was just toured by WCC admins. The last I heard the vast majority of WCC schools were in favor of playing in Vegas on a two year trial basis, then committing longterm if it went well.

My guess is the tourney will be there in 2009.
