The NCAA Division II Men's Basketball Elite Eight Tournament is coming to Evansville.

The NCAA announced on Wednesday that Evansville's Ford Center will host the tournament on March 26th-27th and 29th.

"The bid process was as competitive as ever, with 53 cities expressing the desire to be a part of one of the world's premier sporting events," NCAA vice president of men's basketball Dan Gavitt said. "We are thrilled for our hosts for the '14 and '15 tournaments, as they include a mix of cities that have proven over the course of several decades how to stage this great event, as well as cities that have come on to the scene in recent years and have embraced the tournament.

Evansville is no stranger to playing hosting basketball tournaments.  The city hosted the Division II Championship from 1957-1975 and again in 2002.
