The Ivy League Men's Basketball Tournament is the conference tournament in men's basketball for the Ivy League, starting in 2017.
It is a single-elimination tournament that involves the top four schools in the standings. The format for the tournament is two semifinal games on the first day (Saturday) with the No. 1 seed playing the No. 4 seed and the No. 2 seed playing the No. 3 seed, followed by the championship game played the next day (Sunday). The tournament's winner receives the League's automatic bid to the NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship.
The teams that finish with the best records from the 14-game regular-season conference schedule will continue to be recognized as Ivy League champions, and a regular-season champion that fails to win the tournament will be invited to the National Invitation Tournament, per NCAA policy on regular season champions, should they fail to receive an NCAA bid.
Prior to the formal tournament, the Ivy League used a one-game playoff if necessary to break ties eight times with two teams, and in 2001-02, a three-team tournament, in order to settle the conference championship.
