Indiana will host the entire 2021 March Madness tournament.
According to Anthony Calhoun, the city of Indy and the NCAA have reached a deal to play every single March Madness game in the area during the coronavirus pandemic. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Now, it sounds like it’s a done deal.

As I’ve said since day one, I’m for whatever works. March Madness last season was snatched away from us because of coronavirus.
We didn’t even get to finish the conference tournaments before the entire thing closed down.
Now, it sounds like the NCAA will have a bubble system in Indiana for the 68-team tournament in March. This is pretty much basketball porn.
Every single team being in the same location is more or less going to be the greatest AAU tournament ever held, and I can’t wait.
