Much attention has been directed to the return of the men and women’s Southern Conference Basketball to Asheville. Asheville last hosted this event in 1995 but from March 2-5 of this year, 23 men’s and women’s teams will play 21 games at the U.S. Cellular Center in Asheville.
The Socon, as it is known by those following basketball, features teams that are athletically gifted but have not, for one reason or the other garnered the attention of the elite in college basketball. Asheville Civic Center-Now named U.S. Cellular Center- has recently undergone a 5 million dollar plus face lift in preparation for the return of this event and fans will benefit as they enjoy both the new seating and a state of the art sound system.
Our Asheville Bed and Breakfast is within walking distance of the civic center and would love to host your stay in Asheville. Our home offers the convenience of not having to drive to this well attended event hence, no parking-no hassle. Give us a look www.cumberlandfalls.com.
Please feel free to call the inn to book your reservation and we’ll happily supply details on Socon and ticket information
The civic center is well placed for convenience to shopping our vibrant downtown Asheville, enjoying Asheville cuisine gaining more and more notoriety daily and also the well celebrated art galleries and antique shops. Downtown can more than offer diversion for any one arriving in Asheville traveling with a basketball aficionado but not sharing the passion of the game.
