Over the years, the Summit League Basketball tournament has grown in popularity and attendance.

That attendance bump can be attributed to numerous factors including the Denny Sanford Premier Center, the level of basketball increasing, and the support of the fans.

The 2023 Summit League Basketball Tournament will take place in March once again in Sioux Falls at the Denny Sanford Premier Center.

The Summit League announced on Monday that tickets for the event will go on sale in October.

Here is the complete release from the Summit League for the on sale of 2023 Summit League Basketball Championship tickets.
