Capilano University is pleased to host the 2020 PACWEST women's and men's basketball championships February 27, 28 and 29, 2020 at the Centre for Sport and Wellness (CSW).
The top-six teams in the men's standings and the women's standings will qualify for the playoff tournament. Seeds No. 1 and 2 will have a bye to the semifinals while the No. 3, 4, 5 and 6 seeds will play quarterfinal games to see who moves on and who goes home.
The winner of the women's side of the tournament will advance to the Canadian Collegiate Athletics Association (CCAA) national championships, hosted this year by Vancouver Island University (VIU) from March 18 to 21, 2020 in Nanaimo, B.C. As hosts, VIU has an automatic berth into nationals but if they win gold in the PACWEST tournament, the silver medal team would also advance.
On the men's side, the national championships are being held March 18 to 21, 2020 at Humber College in Etobicoke, Ont. This year, in addition to the berth earned by the gold-medal team, PACWEST has a wildcard berth to nationals so two teams will advance from this conference.
