By Brett Hein - Standard-Examiner | Feb 27, 2023

With the conclusion of the regular season Monday, Feb. 27, the Big Sky Conference men’s basketball tournament begins Saturday, March 4, at Idaho Central Arena in Boise, Idaho.

The tournament plays out on a neutral site with seeds No. 1 and No. 2 earning a preferred first-round bye by playing a lower seed, then getting a day off, while seeds No. 3-6 also get a bye.

Eastern Washington won the regular season outright with a 16-2 record, followed by Montana State (15-3) and Weber State (12-6) making up the top three.
