Pretty much exactly how it works.  Look at Capital One Arena.  Only reason why Georgetown hosts is because that's where they play most, if not all, of the home games they have.  What's even more peculiar about this is when the BB&T Classic would be at the arena, until the last three years or so of that event, the Hoyas refused to participate (whether or not it had to do with Maryland being in it is a different topic), GW would act as a co-host with the Terps.

In that case, it makes sense for the Hoyas to be the host but it would be nice to see GW as the host so that the Terps and/or Hoyas can actually play as close to home as possible, provided it'd be a first/second round set of games.

 

Georgetown also handles a lot of the media relations duties when they host. Hosting isn't as simple as saying that you'll throw your logo on the court - there are actual responsibilities that come with being the host institution. That wouldn't keep somebody else from hosting (it's not like it's on Georgetown's campus or anything), but if Georgetown wants to host, they'll get right of first refusal.

 

There's also nothing keeping Maryland from playing at Capital One Arena, and they actually did play there in 2002 for the first two rounds. Georgetown, however, could never play in Capital One Arena, even if another school hosted - NCAA bracketing regulations prohibit teams from playing in any venue where they played at least three regular-season games.

Hot take: I would’ve liked to see Gonzaga break out the “ZAGS” jerseys they’ve been wearing all tournament tonight

They've actually been switching back n' forth between the Zags jerseys and their regular whites the entire tournament.

Couldn't disagree more. Those things were hideous.
