(SU ATHLETICS) - Syracuse University has been selected to serve as host of the 2015 Division I Men's Basketball East Regional, according to an announcement by the NCAA.

The NCAA announced 25 preliminary-round sites for the 2014 and 2015 Tournament.

"The bid process was as competitive as ever, with 53 cities expressing the desire to be a part of one of the world's premier sporting events," NCAA vice president of men's basketball Dan Gavitt said. "We are thrilled for our hosts for the '14 and '15 tournaments, as they include a mix of cities that have proven over the course of several decades how to stage this great event, as well as cities that have come on to the scene in recent years and have embraced the tournament."

Syracuse will have the 2015 East Regional on March 27 and 29 at the Carrier Dome. The Dome has played host to the tournament before. The most recent event at the Dome was in 2010. West Virginia defeated Kentucky in the East Regional final that year, 73-66.
