OVC Basketball Tournament TicketsThe Ohio Valley Conference determines its postseason champion each year using the OVC Basketball Tournament. Each team in the men's basketball conference is automatically entered into the tournament and seeded based on its regular-season record in the conference. In the past, the tournament was held at the gym of the team that finished first in the regular season. Now, it is held at a neutral site, the Ford Center in Evansville, Ind. Last year's winner was Murray State, a school located in Murray, Ky. This added to the school's tally as the winningest team in the Ohio Valley Conference Basketball Tournament history with 17. Western Kentucky has the second-most wins with 10. Eastern Kentucky is third with six wins, the last one coming in 2014. The OVC Basketball Tournament is single elimination, and there is no consolation bracket or third-place matchup at the end. The tournament is seeded based on the in-conference regular-season record, and there are no bye games. Get your OVC Basketball Tournament tickets at StubHub today.
What is the format of Ohio Valley Conference Men's Basketball Tournament?The tournament is a single-elimination style bracket consisting of eight seeds. Only seeds 5 through 8 play in the first round. The winner of those games plays the 3 and 4 seeds in the quarterfinals. Finally, the 1 and 2 seed teams will be waiting for those teams in the semifinals after getting a bye for the first two rounds. This helps teams that perform well in the regular season gain an advantage in the postseason, rewarding their effort.
Who won the OVC Basketball Tournament Championship last year?In 2019, Murray State won the Ohio Valley Conference Basketball Tournament. This was the team's second year in a row taking home the title. They did it under the leadership of star player, Ja Morant, who went on to be drafted second in the NBA draft by the Memphis Grizzlies during the summer of 2019, the highest a Murray State player has ever been drafted into the NBA. This year, the tournament is wide open as the Murray State Racers no longer have their star player.
How big is the Ford Center?The Ford Center is a multipurpose arena on the campus of the University of Evansville, home of the Evansville Purple Aces. The site is also used as a concert venue as well as for ice hockey matches. The center has a maximum capacity of 10,000 for basketball games. The arena has one level of seating that completely surrounds the court, so there isn't a bad seat in the house.
Are any former players from the OVC Basketball Tournament currently playing in the NBA?Yes. A number of athletes who played in the Ohio Valley Conference in college are now playing professionally in the NBA. Besides Ja Morant, there are three others in the league: Robert Covington, Alfonso McKinnie and Antonius Cleveland.
