The 2012 SWAC Men's Basketball Tournament will take place March 7–10[1] at the Garland Special Events Center in Garland, Texas. The winner of the tournament will receive the Southwestern Athletic Conference's automatic bid to the 2012 NCAA Tournament.

Format[edit]

Eight teams will qualify for the tournament. Southern and Grambling each received one-year postseason bans in men’s basketball, thus not allowed to participate in the 2012 SWAC Tournament, due to failing to meet the NCAA's Academic Progress Rate requirements.[2] The rest of the seeds will be determined after the final games are played[3]
