American Athletic Conference Women’s Basketball Tournament TicketsThe American Athletic Conference Women’s Tournament is a special postseason event that takes place every year between the end of the regular season and the beginning of the NCAA Tournament. It brings together all 12 teams from across the American Athletic Conference. Full-time conference members of women’s basketball include Cincinnati, East Carolina, Memphis, Houston, SMU, South Florida, Central Florida, Tulsa, Tulane, Temple, UConn and Wichita State. The American Athletic Conference evolved from the old Big East Conference in 2013. Though the Big East was originally comprised of schools from the northeast region, the AAC admitted a new slate of schools from the south and southeast following substantial conference realignment. This realignment forged new rivalries, a new conference schedule and a new tournament format.

What is the format of the tournament?The American Athletic Conference Tournament takes place over four rounds. Teams are seeded based on their regular-season record in the conference. In the first round, the top four seeds all receive byes, while the last eight teams match up against each other: the 12 seed plays against the five seed, 11 plays against six, 10 plays against seven and eight plays against nine. The four winners to emerge from this round then play the top four seeds in the quarterfinals. Teams are not reseeded, so the top seed will always play the winner of the eight/nine matchup and so on. The quarterfinals are then followed by standard semifinals and championship games.
When does the tournament take place?The 2020 AAC Tournament takes place between March 6th and 9th, a few days after the final regular-season games. Tickets must be purchased on a per-session basis. During the first two rounds of the tournament, there are two sessions: one beginning at noon and the other beginning at 6 PM. Each session is comprised of two games. The semifinals and finals, however, are comprised of only a single session. The semifinals session obviously lasts for two games, while the finals session is only one game.
What was the result of the previous tournament?In the 2019 AAC Tournament, No. 1 seed UConn beat No. 2 seed Central Florida by a score of 66-45. Forward Napheesa Collier scored a game-high 25 points and 14 rebounds in the victory. She was named the most outstanding player of the tournament. As a national powerhouse and perennial national title contender, Connecticut won the tournament every single year between 2014 and 2019. The team also dominated the Big East tournament when it was a member of the conference.
How large is the venue?Located in the Mohegan Sun Casino Resort, the Mohegan Sun Arena has a maximum seating capacity of 10,000. The arena is the home of the Connecticut Sun of the WNBA and the New England Black Wolves of the National Lacrosse League. It is located right next to various dining options, hotel accommodations, live entertainment and shopping.
What is the reward for winning the AAC Tournament?Apart from earning the distinction of tournament champions, the winner of the final game also receives an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament, regardless of the team’s record during the regular season. That gives every team the impetus to compete for the AAC Tournament championship. In order for the remaining teams to make the NCAA Tournament, they must be chosen by the selection committee for an at-large bid based on their qualifications. Tournament games are taken into account when deciding who will be chosen for the at-large bids.
