It looks like the American Athletic Conference is settling in nicely. The AAC, which is filled with the remains of the old Big East, had been searching for a location to hold its postseason conference tournament since Madison Square Garden is no longer an option.
Today, it was announced that the AAC Tournament will be held in the FedEx Forum, home of the NBA’s Memphis Grizzlies, as well as the Memphis Tigers:
The first American Athletic Conference MBB Championship will be played in Memphis’ @fedexforum next March 12-15 twitter.com/American_MBB/s…

While definitely not MSG, this is a pretty good venue for the conference tournament — just an all-around solid move.
