The 2021 MEAC tournament stretches from March 11-13, with the entire tournament played in Norfolk, Virginia at The Scope arena. There will be no re-seeding in the bracket. The men’s tournament wraps on March 13 with the championship game airing on ESPN2.

There was a play-in game originally scheduled, but it appears to have been canceled by the league. The North Division was separated by tiebreakers, as all three teams finished with an 8-4 conference record.

Here is the schedule for the 2021 MEAC Conference Tournament Championship:

Thursday, March 11 - Quarterfinals (at The Scope)
