In addition to this announcement, the NCAA announced the Round of 64 will go back to being called the "first round" in 2016.

The NCAA released the NCAA Tournament sites through 2018 on Monday. Let's take a look at them:

They're moving away from having the Sweet Sixteen/Elite Eight in football stadiums, which is great. I've been to two Sweet Sixteens, one at the Edward Jones Dome, one at Lucas Oil Stadium. It doesn't have the same environment in a half-closed off football stadium as a pure basketball arena.

Also, in case you didn't realize this, the Big East sites are Providence in 2016, Madison Square Garden in 2017, and Creighton in 2018.
