Valley Of The Sun Shootout history
The inaugural Valley of the Sun Shootout takes place in December 2017, part of the constantly growing popularity of NCAA college basketball throughout the country. This event boosts the profile of college basketball in the Southwest, inviting the best teams from the region to compete in one of the biggest arenas in the area.
Basketball may have been invented by a Canadian, but it was American colleges which evolved and perfected the sport. Roundball has been a staple of collegiate athletics since the early 1890s, when the game started to catch on beyond the confines of local YMCAs.
The NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament began in 1939, creating the foundation for a nationwide competition among the best colleges. Rules evolved over the years, with the most recent major change consisting of the shot clock reduced to thirty seconds. This major tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985, creating the modern version of March Madness.
The Valley of the Sun Shootout is the latest big event for the sport, feeding off the previous success of men's college basketball throughout the United States.
