Since 1980, the America East Men’s and Women’s Championship has pitted conference foes against each other to savagely battle for bracket positioning over the course of several days. This year’s tournament will see defending men’s champions Boston University staving off as of yet-to-be-decided opponents, with senior guard Darryl Partin strapping tiny pogo sticks to his sneakers in hopes of adding to his average of 19.8 points per game. The Hartford Hawks women’s squad protects its title behind the charge of freshman guard Amber Bepko, who garnered a career-high 18 points in the victorious game against UMBC on February 19. During the championship’s first round on March 1, teams attempt to out-dunk their competition for placement in the quarterfinals on March 2–3. Victors of the quarterfinals compete during a semifinal tilt on March 4, which determines which team will host its respective championship game and Indiana Jones marathon the following weekend.
