Charles Leclaire-US PRESSWIRE
After hosting a couple of rounds of the NCAA Tournament earlier this year, it's been announced that the Big Dance will again be coming back to Pittsburgh in 2015.
Duquesne serves as the host for the games, which will be played at the Consol Energy Center downtown. It was rough having to watch the tournament come to PIttsburgh last year without the Panthers being in it, but hopefully that will change the next time around.
The biggest NCAA memory from Pittsburgh hosting the games was No. 15 Coppin State defeating second-seeded South Carolina 15 years ago. But one of my greatest memories was watching Pitt in the tournament playing at Mellon Arena about a decade ago after years of futility.
Pitt will host the first two rounds after the idiotic 'Opening' round (which will be hosted in Dayton) and other host sites for those rounds will include Jacksonville, Louisville, Portland, Charlotte, Columbus, Omaha, and Seattle. The regional sites will be Cleveland, Los Angeles, Houston, and Syracuse.
