MIAC Tournament

* Through 2012-13 Season


The four-team MIAC Tournament was initiated in 1986 for the 1986-87 season. Since that time, it has become one of the most entertaining and intense Division III post-season tournaments in the country. The tournament expanded to five teams in 2002-03. Every year, there is a fierce battle during the regular season to see not only which team can win the MIAC title, but also who can finish among the top five in the league and qualify for the tournament.
