NOTES:
Winner receives an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. All times Eastern. The top two teams receive a bye into the semifinals. The #3 and #4 seeds receive byes into the second round. Milwaukee will not get a chance to defend its title, as they are ineligible due to cumulative Academic Performance Rate scores. Formerly known as the Midwestern Collegiate Conference. Xavier won the MCC title six times (1983, 86-89, 91), Evansville three times (1982, 1992-93) and Oral Roberts twice (1980, 84) when they were members of the conference. Oklahoma City (1981), Loyola-Chicago (1985), Dayton (1990) and Northern Illinois (1996) were also winners of the MCC tournament. Butler won the Horizon League title seven times when it was a member (1997-98, 2000-01, 08, 10-11). As the fifth seed last year, Milwaukee defeated third-seeded Wright State, 69-63, for its fourth Horizon League title and first in eight years. Milwaukee lost to Villanova, 73-53, in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.Illinois-Chicago became the lowest seeded team to win in 2002 when they were seeded sixth. Byron Larkin of Xavier is the only player to win three tournament MVP awards (1986-88).
