The Southwestern Athletic Conference, headquartered in Birmingham, AL, is made up of historically black universities throughout the south who participate in the NCAA’s Division 1. It contains schools from 5 states: Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Arkansas. The winners of this tournament will receive the Southwestern Athletic Conference’s automatic bid to the 2012 NCAA Tournament.

Eight teams have qualified for the 2012 SWAC Tournament. Unfortunately Southern and Grambling won’t be playing since they received one-year postseason bans in men’s basketball.
