NCAA Tournament sites: Cleveland wins bid for Midwest Regional in 2015

Kevin C. Cox

Cleveland was one of 13 cities selected to host games during the 2015 men's NCAA tournament.

The NCAA men's basketball tournament will be coming to Cleveland in 2015 as the city was selected to host the Midwest Regional.

Cleveland was one of 13 cities selected to host games in the 2015 tournament and one of four selected to host a regional. The games will be played on March 26 and 28 at the Quicken Loans Arena. Cleveland last hosted NCAA tournament games in 2011, when the city was one of the opening weekend sites.

NCAA vice president of men's basketball Dan Gavitt said 53 cities expressed interest in hosting. Ohio was one of three states to have three cities earn bids in 2015. The University of Dayton will continue to host the play-in games while Columbus will host first and second round games at the Nationwide Arena.

In addition to Cleveland, the other three regionals will be hosted at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Reliant Stadium in Houston and the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, New York.
