Winner receives an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. All times Eastern. The championship will be held at the Times union Center in Albany, New York. The top five seeds receive byes into the quarterfinals. Last year, Manhattan won its fourth title with a 71-68 win over Iona in the championship. Manhattan was the second seed, while Iona was the top seed. Manhattan lost to Louisville, 71-64, in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Manhattan and Iona have played each other in the championship the last two seasons, with each school winning once. Siena's 21-point win over Vanderbilt in the first round of the 2008 NCAA Tournament was the largest winning margin by a MAAC team in an NCAA Tournament game. Siena's three straight MAAC regular season and tournament championships from 2008-10 made them just the second team to accomplish that feat. LaSalle pulled it off from 1988-90. Siena's Kenny Hasbrouck (2008-09), Manhattan's Luis Flores (2003-04) and La Salle's Lionel Simmons (1989-90) are the only players who have won two tournament MVP awards. La Salle won the MAAC tournament four times (1988-90, 92) and Loyola-Maryland twice (1994, 2012) when they were members of the conference. Fordham won the tournament once (1983) when it was a member.
