The New Jersey Board of Athletic Administrators is expanding this season’s New Jersey Athletic Conference men’s and women’s basketball tournaments.
The tournaments, which begin Feb. 19, will include all 10 schools in the conference this season. The conference cited ongoing disruptions to the schedule this season due to COVID-19.
Typically, the top six teams qualify for the men’s and women’s tournaments, with the top two teams earning first-round byes in each.
The four lowest seeds in each will play first-round games Feb. 19. Those winners will join the eight-team quarterfinals, which will be played Feb. 22. The semifinals will be played Feb. 24, and the championship games on Feb. 26.
