"2020-21 academic year, conference tournaments for eight sports will be eliminated, while men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball and seven other sports will undergo postseason adjustments, the MAC announced Tuesday. Baseball, softball, men’s and women's soccer, men’s and women's tennis field hockey and women’s lacrosse will send their regular-season winners to the NCAA tournaments.
Only the top eight teams will make the men’s and women’s basketball tournaments, held at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland. The conference will also abandon divisions for the regular season and expand that schedule from 18 to 20 games.
Baseball and softball will play 30-game regular-season schedules.The plan covers four years and will be evaluated as the economic impact of the coronavirus unfolds. Additional reductions will be made in the overall postseason budget. "
