Sports

The Mountain East Conference will be taking over the Friendly City next week as WesBanco Arena hosts the men’s and women’s MEC Basketball Tournament. 

Charleston has been home to the tournament since 2014.

Local colleges like West Liberty University and Wheeling Jesuit are current members of the MEC, so fans are expected to be out in full force. 

“We can just feel an excitement that’s building about this tournament coming to WesBanco Arena and I don’t know that I can properly stress that what tremendous leadership and support we’ve had from the community leaders and business leaders here in the Wheeling area,” said Reid Amos, the Commissioner of the MEC. “If we get similar support from fans in the Ohio Valley as we’ve gotten from those local business and community leaders, we’re going to have a fantastic event.”

The MEC Tournament starts Wednesday, March 6 at noon.

Tickets are on sale now at the WesBanco Arena box office.
