SoCon faces decision on future of tournament

Chattanooga and Charleston are destination cities with aquariums and river views. Where Charleston boasts history, beaches and the Battery, Chattanooga, Tenn., can claim Lookout Mountain, Ruby Falls and the Chattanooga Choo-Choo.

They both want the Southern Conference Basketball Tournament, preferably for the next three years.

The SoCon Tournament concludes its current run at the North Charleston Coliseum with the men's and women's championship games on Saturday. In mid-March, the league will announce the site of the next three tournaments - for 2008, 2009 and 2010 - and Chattanooga and Charleston were the only cities to submit bids in late January.
