Oklahoma City has been selected to host the 2014 Big 12 women's basketball tournament, the conference announced Wednesday.
Following the 2012 Big 12 basketball championships in Kansas City, Mo., the men's and women's tournaments will be held in separate cities.
The men's championship is under contract to continue at the Sprint Center in Kansas City through 2014.
The 2013 women's tourney will be held in Dallas at the American Airlines Center and Oklahoma City will host the 2014 women's tournament at Chesapeake Energy Arena (formerly the Ford Center).
In another change, the women's tournament will take place Friday through Monday preceding the men's championship, which will continue to be held Wednesday through Saturday.
"Our woman's basketball coaches and student-athletes will have the opportunity to showcase the sport's premiere conference championship in state-of-the-art arenas that our home to NBA teams," Big 12 interim commissioner Chuck Neinas in a statement. "I would like to thank the Kansas City Sports Commission for accommodating our desire to separate the men's and women's basketball championships. Kansas City continues to be a valuable partner of the Big 12."
Oklahoma City hosted the 2007 and 2009 Big 12 women's tournament at the Cox Convention Center.
In 2008 and 2009, Oklahoma City hosted an NCAA women's regional inside Chesapeake Arena and had the best attendance among the four regional sites for both single session and combined attendance. The facility is home to the NBA Thunder.
