The MAAC Men's Basketball Tournament determines the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference champion and the winner of the conference's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.

Seeding[edit]

Seeds in the MAAC tournament are linked to teams' conference records. Non-conference games are not a factor. The team with the overall best record in the conference is seeded "1", the next best conference record "2", and so on.

Teams from 1 to 6 receive a bye in the first round.
