The Big Ten Conference’s next move to enhance its East Coast presence is coming Tuesday.

The league has called a noon press conference at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C., where it is expected to announce that the 2017 men’s Big Ten Basketball Tournament will be played in that 20-000-seat facility.

The 2015 tournament is scheduled for the United Center in Chicago, with the 2016 event taking place at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. The current deal for the Chicago-Indianapolis rotation ends after the 2016 tournament.
