HOUSTON — The Harris County Houston Sports Authority was ecstatic Monday morning after the city was selected to host the NCAA Men's Final Four tournament in 2023.
"It's a great day again for the city of Houston," Mayor Sylvester Turner told the team over the phone.
NRG Park, which hosted the 2011 and 2016 Final Fours, was chosen as the site for upcoming collegiate basketball tournament. The decision by the NCAA Men's Basketball Committee was announced on Twitter at 2:30 p.m.
