San Antonio and Dallas are among eight other cities also seeking to host a men's Final Four in the four-year period. Houston, San Antonio and Dallas are competing with seven other cities in seeking one of the women's events.
Each city has until mid-June to submit a bid. Finalists will be determined in August.
