    AAC to Play Women's Tournament at Mohegan Sun Through 2020
    NBC Connecticut
    UConn beat East Carolina 106-56 in the semifinals of the American Athletic Conference Tournament at Mohegan Sun on Sunday.

    UConn fans will be happy to hear the American Athletic Conference will continue to play its women's basketball tournament at Mohegan Sun.

    The conference announced Wednesday that it has reached an agreement to have Mohegan Sun host the tournament through the 2020 season.

    The event has been held for the past four years in the casino's arena, which seats about 8,000 people.

    The venue is home for the WNBA's Connecticut Sun.

    UConn is one of the top draws for women's hoops, having never lost an AAC regular season or tournament game.

    Since 2014, the American has led all Division I women's tournaments in attendance, averaging just over 30,000 fans for the four day event.
