Edison, N.J. - With the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference expanding to 11 teams starting with the 2013-14 season, the league will move to playing a 20-game double round robin conference schedule in both men's and women's basketball.

"A 20-game double round robin schedule that was unanimously approved by the athletic directors provides equity for all of our competing student-athletes as they work towards the goal of a MAAC championship," MAAC Commissioner Rich Ensor stated. "I am also pleased to develop a format that brings all of our coaches, student-athletes and fans to Springfield to enjoy our championship experience. I want to thank all of the athletic directors for their assistance in finalizing this endeavor."


For the men's basketball programs, each school will play two games during the December weekend already allotted for MAAC games followed by nine more weeks of conference play after January 1. The women's basketball teams will play all 20 conference games starting December 27, 2013.  In both sports, each team will play two games per week, and an equal number of home and road contests (10) for each program's conference schedule.

"The 20-game format allows us to both build new rivalries with the addition of Monmouth and Quinnipiac, while maintaining our traditional rivalries, such as the competition between Manhattan and Iona since the formation of the MAAC 32 years ago," Manhattan College Director of Athletics Bob Byrnes added.

"The balanced 20-game schedule gives us fairness amongst the programs within the MAAC, plus an additional home contest at our respective facilities for all of our fans to enjoy during the regular season," Marist College Director of Athletics Tim Murray said.

In addition to the 20-game regular season format, the athletic directors proposed to maintain the tradition of bringing all the conference teams to participate in the annual MAAC Basketball Championships. The proposal will be finalized with the MassMutual Center for the 2014 MAAC Basketball Championships in the coming weeks.  The new proposed 11-team format of the men's and women's championships would be as follows:
