C-USA basketball returning to Divisional format for the 1st time since 2002-03
Quote:DALLAS – Conference USA men’s and women’s basketball will move to a divisional standings format for the 2020-21 season, as approved by the league’s Board of Directors.

C-USA will feature East and West divisions and will crown divisional champions at the conclusion of conference play in March. Standings will be based on overall conference winning percentage. In addition, divisional seeding will be utilized for the C-USA Men’s and Women’s Championships. A cross-divisional bracket will be used to determine first-round matchups.

The East Division will be comprised of Charlotte, FIU, Florida Atlantic, Marshall, Middle Tennessee, Old Dominion and WKU. Louisiana Tech, North Texas, Rice, Southern Miss, UAB, UTEP and UTSA will make up the West Division.

Men’s and women’s conference competition begins Friday, leading up to the 2021 Air Force Reserve C-USA Basketball Championships presented by Baylor, Scott & White Sports Performance Center at The Star, scheduled for March 10-13 in Frisco, Texas. This will be the fourth year that the event will be held in Frisco.

When did they announce it's only going to be an 8 team conference tournament?

I'm not sure when, but that is what it states on the Conference's website. but a whole lot hasn't been updated on there, so it could be wrong. There is a lot wrong on that page...I guess there isn't enough time to updated it, with the free gym and all the shopping opportunities with the fancy new conference digs.

You think just a couple of people can repair and maintain that curtain? That’s a 10-person crew at least. Priorities, dude.

The top six teams from each division will qualify for the single-elimination tournament and will be seeded by conference winning percentage. The top two teams from each division will also receive a bye. The winner will gain the league's automatic bid to the NCAA Championship.

I'm glad they finally got around to correcting it.

By this time March gets here, the plan will be to have the top 5 teams playing a round-robin game of Farkle to determine the champion.
