by Keith Jarrett
ASHEVILLE -- Five schools are out, three schools are in, and Asheville will be home to the Southern Conference basketball tournament through 2017.
A hectic few months of comings and goings, additions and subtractions may be over now for the 93-year-old Southern Conference, which will look drastically different in 2014.
For now, a busy Thursday at league meetings in Hilton Head, S.C., concluded with announcements that three new schools were joining the league and a three-year contract extension to keep the basketball tournament in Asheville has been signed.
