The Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Men's Basketball Tournament is the annual conference basketball championship tournament for the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference. It is a single-elimination tournament and seeding is based on regular season records.[1]

Between 1951 and 1960, the regular season champion was declared league champion based on record alone. From 1961 to 1980, a singular championship game was held between the top two teams from the regular season standings. Finally, a tournament (of varying sizes, presently at 12) has been held each year since 1981.

The winner, declared conference champion, receives the PSAC's automatic bid to the NCAA Men's Division II Basketball Championship.
