Got a release today that the America East Conference
will be combining the men's and women's tournaments for next season at Hartford's Chase Arena
The positives: You can expect a larger overall crowd because there will be 18 teams instead of nine and it will be better for host cities in terms of revenue dollars.
The negatives: This can seem like a negative to people who would just like to attend either the men's or women's tournament.
On the whole, I think this is a good idea.
