NJCAA Men's Division II Basketball Championship

The National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Men's Division II Basketball Championships consists of sixteen teams playing over a five-day period (Wednesday through Saturday) in March to determine a National Champion.

About the tournamentEdit

Teams qualify for the tournament by first winning their district/region championships. The NJCAA Division II Men's Basketball Committee then seeds the top eight teams and uses a blind draw to place the remaining eight teams. When choosing the top eight seeds for the tournament, the three criteria that are considered by the committee are the national poll, the coaches' rankings, and each team's history.[citation needed]

Since 1994, Danville Area Community College has hosted the tournament in the Mary Miller Gymnasium.[1][2]
