SAN BRUNO, Calif. – As part of the previously-adopted Men's Basketball Enhancement Plan, the West Coast Conference Presidents' Council has approved changes to men's basketball scheduling as well as the format of the men's and women's basketball championships.
Under the approved plan and beginning with the 2018-19 season, the West Coast Conference men's basketball season will consist of 16 regular season games (eight home, eight away). Every institution will play seven WCC institutions twice, while playing one member at home and another away – based on approved criteria.
Also beginning next season, the men's and women's championship format will change, whereby seed Nos. 7-10 will compete in the opening round, Nos. 5 and 6 will first participate in the second round, seeds 3-4 will first participate in the third round, and the top two seeds will play their first game in the semifinal round. Both the men's and women's championships will again take place concurrently at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.
