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.
