The American Athletic Conference men’s basketball tournament championship and semifinals is moving to CBS in 2018.
The American’s championship game is at 2 p.m. March 11. The semifinals air at noon and 2:30 p.m. on March 10.
Last season’s tournament semifinals were shown on ESPN2 with the championship game on ESPN.
The entire tournament will return to ESPN in 2019, according to a news release.
“We are extremely pleased to have our semifinal and championship games on CBS,” American commissioner Mike Aresco said in the news release. “This arrangement is another reflection of the growth and attractiveness of our men’s basketball. We thank both ESPN and CBS for working to facilitate this move, and we greatly value the relationship we have with these two college basketball television leaders.”
ESPN will carry the first two days of the tournament. The tournament will be held in Orlando, Fla. at the Amway Center.
