Ivy League decides not to have postseason tourney
The Ivy League has decided not to have postseason tournaments to
determine its men’s and women’s basketball champions.
The league athletic directors agreed at their annual meeting not
to move forward with proposals for postseason tournaments.
Ivy League executive director Robin Harris said Thursday that
the athletics directors felt the current method of determining the
league champion and its automatic bid recipient to the NCAA
Championship is the best model moving forward.
In men’s and women’s basketball, the Ivy League plays a 14-game,
double round-robin schedule where each team plays each other home
and away. The team with the best conference record in each sport is
awarded the Ivy title and the League’s NCAA Tournament automatic
In the case of a tie, a one-game playoff is held.
