Southeastern Conference Commissioner Mike Slive announced that the league’s directors of athletics have unanimously approved the city of St. Louis and the Scottrade Center as the host site of the 2018 SEC men's basketball tournament.

The announcement occurred Tuesday at the league’s annual spring meetings in Destin, Fla.

“I would like to thank Commissioner (Mike) Slive, his staff at the Southeastern Conference and my league counterparts for unanimously approving St. Louis’ proposal to host the 2018 Southeastern Conference Tournament for men’s basketball,” Missouri athletics director Mike Alden said. “I would also like to congratulate Frank (Viverito) and his team with the St. Louis Sports Commission for their efforts in bringing this premier college basketball tournament to our state."

Missouri men's basketball coach Kim Anderson also offered praise. “Congratulations to St. Louis, the St. Louis Sports Commission and the great basketball fans in the city and our state for earning the right to host the 2018 Southeastern Conference basketball tournament,” he said.

“It’s an honor to have the SEC Tournament hosted in our state’s footprint for the first time, and I know fans from throughout our league will be treated to a first-class experience and a great week of college basketball.”
