OVC Championship[edit]

For the last 2 years, since Belmont joined, the OVC does NOT have a regular season champion; it has 2 division champions, and Belmont has won the East Division both years. GWFrog (talk) 03:12, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

By virtue of having the best conference record, Belmont is considered to be the "regular season champion" for the purpose of gaining the automatic bid to the National Invitation Tournament; beyond that usage, for the purposes of the OVC, Belmont is the East Division champion, Murray State is the West Division champion, and Eastern Kentucky is the OVC tournament champion. The only way to have a regular season conference champion is to not have the conference divided into divisions, ala the Big Ten, ACC, A-10, C-USA, Pac-12, SEC...
