Big 12 hoops to stay in KC through 2016

The Big 12 men’s basketball tournament will be played at Sprint Center through 2016, the conference announced Friday.

The deal represents a two-year extension of the current contract and includes a provision that allows the Big 12 the first right to championship dates after 2016.

We are enthusiastic about remaining in Kansas City,” incoming Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said.
