Ivy League decides against tournament

By Kieran Darcy

The Ivy League announced on Thursday that it has decided not to move forward with proposals for a men's and women's postseason basketball tournament.

"After careful consideration of these proposals, the athletics directors decided that our current method of determining the Ivy League champion and our automatic bid recipient to the NCAA Championship is the best model moving forward," said Robin Harris, Ivy League executive director.

The Ivy League remains the lone Division I conference that awards its automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament to its regular season champion.
