Morehouse College is hosting the nation’s oldest conference basketball tournament for historically black colleges and universities as the 80th Annual Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Basketball Tournament tips off at Frank L. Forbes Arena on Feb. 25.


The men’s and women’s basketball teams from the SIAC’s 14 institutions are battling for titles, which will be determined after championship games on March 1 and 2.  Also at stake are the conference’s two automatic bids to the NCAA Division II National Basketball Tournament.  The NCAA Division II National Championship Game will be played in Atlanta’s Phillips Arena on April 7.


The Morehouse Maroon Tigers are seeded second in the SIAC East Division after finishing the regular season with a 16-2 in the SIAC. They open tournament play Thursday at 3:15 p.m. against the winner of Tuesday’s Kentucky State-Fort Valley State game.
