The one-day event, which could feature up to four games on a yet-to-be-determined date in November, would be run by bd Global. In the ESPN.com report, bd Global president Brooks Downing told the website: “We’re still tying up some loose ends but hopefully we’ll be able to announce something soon.”
Downing declined to name potential teams but said the idea is to use the event as a tip-off to the college season and “generate a lot of excitement and hype about college basketball in the city that’s hosting the Final Four.”
The 2014 Final Four will be played at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.
