PARK CITY, UTAH-- The Western Athletic Conference announced on Tuesday that it had extended an offer of invitation that was accepted by Seattle University. Seattle will join the conference on July 1, 2012.

The admission of Seattle will bring the conference to nine full time members; Idaho, Louisiana Tech, Utah State, New Mexico State, San Jose State, Texas State, UTSA, Denver (non-football), and Seattle (non-football).

"We are pleased to announce that Seattle University is joining the WAC," said Commissioner Karl Benson.  "Seattle's tradition and history along with a strong commitment to academics, its athletics program and their facilities make the university and its top-15 media market a great fit for the WAC.  We look forward to a beneficial and successful relationship."

The WAC Board of Directors also determined that the 2012 men's and women's basketball tournament will again be held in Las Vegas at the Orleans Arena.
