The Orleans Hotel and Casino is expected to be the host at its 9,000-seat arena.
The tournaments will be held in Reno in 2010.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the event will be March 9-12, the same time as the Mountain West Conference tournament at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.
"Over the course of the last year, it has become more critical and important to find a neutral site to satisfy the concerns of our men's and women's coaches," WAC commissioner Karl Benson told the Las Vegas paper.
