About the MEAC Basketball Tournament:
The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) is in its 52nd year of intercollegiate competition with the 2021-22 academic school year. Located in Norfolk, Va., the MEAC is made up of eight outstanding historically black institutions across the Atlantic coastline: Coppin State University, Delaware State University, Howard University, University of Maryland Eastern Shore, Morgan State University, Norfolk State University, North Carolina Central University and South Carolina State University.
The tournament games are played at the Norfolk Scope Arena in Virginia. Both the men’s and women’s champions will receive an automatic bid to the NCAA Division I Tournament. The Bethune-Cookman Lady Wildcats and North Carolina Central Eagles won the 2019 women’s and men’s titles, respectively, and received bids to the NCAA Tournament. The 2020 Tournament was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
