ST. LOUIS — The Missouri Valley Conference will continue hosting its men's basketball tournament here for another five years.

That means Arch Madness will remain at the Enterprise Center through 2024. The MVC will conduct its 30th straight tournament in St. Louis this spring. Only the Big East playing in New York has been in one city longer.

The St. Louis Sports Commission estimated Monday that over 30 years, the MVC tourney has generated over $200 million in economic impact.
