“Hosting the A-10 Championship in the number one and number six media markets in the United States has been fantastic for the conference,” Atlantic 10 Commissioner Bernadette V. McGlade said in a press release. “Both Capital One Arena and Barclays Center are venues our coaches, student-athletes and fans love. Our partnership with these organizations continues to elevate the A-10 Men’s Basketball Championship.”
