NOTES:
Winner receives an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. All times Eastern. This is the ninth year that the tournament is being held at Quicken Loans Arena (formerly known as Gund Arena) in Cleveland. The MAC Tournament has been contested at several different sites over the years, most recently the SeaGate Centre in Toledo from 1996-99. Last year, fourth-seeded Miami-Ohio defeated second-seeded Akron, 53-52, for their fourth MAC Tournament title and first since 1997. Miami-Ohio lost to Oregon, 58-56, in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Kent State has played in the six of the last nine championship games. Ball State (1989-90) and Kent State (2001-02) are the only schools to win this tournament two straight years. Kent State's Trevor Huffman (2001-02) and Ball State's Billy Butts (1989-90) are the only players in conference history to win two straight tournament MVP's. The top four teams from the regular season will receive byes in the opening round.
