After hosting two rounds of the 2008 and 2012 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournaments with resounding success, Creighton University has been selected to host the second/third-round of the 2015 Division I Men's Basketball Championship.

Creighton will host second-round games on Friday, March 20th and third-round contests on Sunday, March 22nd. Games will take place at CenturyLink Center Omaha in Omaha, Neb.

"The bid process was as competitive as ever, with 53 cities expressing the desire to be a part of one of the world's premier sporting events," NCAA vice president of men's basketball Dan Gavitt said. "We are thrilled for our hosts for the '14 and '15 tournaments, as they include a mix of cities that have proven over the course of several decades how to stage this great event, as well as cities that have come on to the scene in recent years and have embraced the tournament.

Information about tickets for the event will be released at a much later date.
