The 2012 Northeast Conference Men's Basketball Tournament was held between March 1 and 7.[1] All games were held on the campus sites of the higher seed. The winner will receive a bid to the 2012 NCAA Tournament.

Format[edit]

The top 8 teams in the standings will qualify for the tournament. The field will be re-seeded after the Quarterfinals so that the #1 seed will host the highest remaining seed, and #2 will host the lowest remaining seed.

Bryant is in its final transition year, thus remains ineligible for the NCAA tournament and thus not allowed to participate.

Bracket[edit]

All games will be played at the venue of the higher seed.[2]
