NSIC to hold basketball tournaments at Sioux Falls' new Pentagon

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — The Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference will hold its men's and women's basketball tournaments at a new Sioux Falls complex beginning in 2014.

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — The Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference will hold its men's and women's basketball tournaments at a new Sioux Falls complex beginning in 2014.

Commissioner Butch Raymond on Tuesday announced a three-year agreement to move the NSIC/Sanford Health Men's and Women's Basketball Tournaments to the Pentagon by Sanford Health.

The 160,000-square-foot facility is scheduled to open in the fall of 2013. The Pentagon is a comprised of nine basketball courts — six high school regulation courts, two professional-college practice courts and a “heritage” court paying homage to 1950s-60s basketball.

Raymond says the pentagon-shaped facility aligns with the conference's goal to provide a tremendous student-athlete experience. He says Sioux Falls will be a great host community.

The 2014 basketball quarterfinals, semifinals and finals will run March 1-4 at the facility.
