             === Ivy League snubs postseason tournament format ===
 Red  Bank, NJ (Sports Network) - The Ivy League announced on Thursday that its
 directors  of  athletics have decided not  to continue to pursue proposals for
 postseason tournaments in men's and women's basketball.
 "After  careful  consideration  of  these proposals,  the  athletic  directors
 decided that our current method of determining the Ivy League champion and our
 automatic  bid  to the  NCAA Championship  is the  best model moving forward,"
 remarked Robin Harris, Ivy League executive director.
 Instead  of using a postseason tournament, the Ivy League relies on conference
 record  to determine  a champion. Ivy League institutions in men's and women's
 basketball  play a  14-game, double  round-robin schedule  in which  each team
 plays  each other  home and away. The  team with the best conference record is
 then awarded the league title and an automatic NCAA Tournament bid.
