Ivy League decides not to have postseason tourney
RED BANK, N.J. (AP) 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 bid.
In the case of a tie, a one-game playoff is held.
