Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, and Western Michigan are among the four teams who did not qualify for the 2021 MAC mens basketball tournament. Last-place Northern Illinois also did not qualify. The conference adopted an eight-team format for its mens and womens basketball tournament this year, with all games in Cleveland. Past tournaments included all 12 teams participating, with the top four receiving first-round byes to Cleveland and the remaining eight starting with first round games at campus sites. Even if a team must opt out prior to the start of the tournament due to COVID-19 concerns, a replacement team will not be selected, per conference protocol. 2021 MAC Mens Basketball TournamentRocket Mortgage FieldHouse, ClevelandThursday, March 11QuarterfinalsGame 1.
