Although it’s more well-known as a football juggernaut, the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC) boasts one of the most dynamic basketball tournaments in the country with a history of excellence that few Division II leagues can match. Begun back in 1934, the event was initially played between the two institutions that have held continuous membership in the conference: Clark College (now Clark Atlanta University) and Tuskegee University. Over the years, the tourney has been held at the Birmingham Crossplex and many other venues that housed the pulse-pounding action on the hardwood.
The SIAC Men’s Basketball Tournament was a consistent force in the college basketball world since its inception, and Tuskegee University emerged as the juggernaut that other teams tried to emulate. For the men, the champions have been spread far while the Fort Valley State Lady Wildcats stole the show for a cumulative 11 championship titles. In the late 2000s, the SIAC experienced remarkable recruiting growth, and it is now widely considered one of the must-watch tourneys of the postseason.
