Mike Alden, Mizzou Director of Athletics
"I would like to thank Commissioner (Mike) Slive, his staff at the Southeastern Conference and my league counterparts for unanimously approving St. Louis' proposal to host the 2018 Southeastern Conference Tournament for men's basketball," Alden said. "I would also like to congratulate Frank (Viverito) and his team with the St. Louis Sports Commission for their efforts in bringing this premier college basketball tournament to our state. There were many worthy venues and cities competing for this championship, and I know our fans, our state and the city of St. Louis will help create a memorable experience for our student-athletes, coaches and fans traveling in for this great event. What an exciting day for our University and our state."
Kim Anderson, Mizzou Basketball Head Coach
"Congratulations to St. Louis, the St. Louis Sports Commission and the great basketball fans in the city and our state for earning the right to host the 2018 Southeastern Conference Basketball Tournament," Anderson said.
