The Big Ten Tournament is on its way to the nation’s capital.

Conference Commissioner Jim Delany announced Tuesday that the Big Ten has agreed to move its basketball tournament to the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C., starting in 2017.

Chicago’s United Center will host the tourney in 2015, and Indianapolis’ Banker’s Life Field House will have it in 2016.

Reports have surfaced that the Big Ten is also looking to move the tournament to the New York area in coming years in addition to rotating with traditional host cities Chicago and Indianapolis.
