SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- Lubbock, Texas, is challenging Salina for the right to host the national junior college women's basketball tournament, which has been held in the Kansas city for more than 15 years.

The NJCAA Women's Basketball Championship is under a contract for two more years to hold its weeklong tournament in Salina. The event brings in about $600,000 to Salina.

Dennis Lauver, president of the Salina Area Chamber of Commerce, says Salina will increase its financial package to order to counter competition from Lubbock. He declined to say what the financial offering will be.

The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1dHQjy2 ) the NJCAA is expected to make a decision sometime in April.

This year's tournament runs from March 16 through 22 at the Salina Bicentennial Center.
