The topic of shifting the NCAA men’s basketball season and the championship is not currently under formal discussion nor on the agenda of the Division I Men’s Basketball Oversight Committee. Preliminary round dates and sites have been selected through the 2018 championship, and the Final Four dates and sites have been determined through 2021. Within the next year, we will determine additional future tournament sites, using the seasonal calendar now in place.

-Dan Gavitt, NCAA vice president of men's basketball championships
