AAC Conference History:
The American Athletic Conference, also known simply as the AAC, consists of 12 teams and was created in 2013 after the splitting of the original Big East Conference. Every year, the conference’s men’s basketball teams play out their 20-game regular-season schedule before competing in the AAC Men’s Basketball tournament. Seedings for this single-elimination tournament are determined by the regular season standings. The winner of the AAC tournament earns an automatic berth in the NCAA Division 1 Men’s Basketball tournament.
Being a relatively new conference, the AAC isn’t exactly steeped in history although many of the schools are. The Cincinnati Bearcats have won the past two AAC men’s basketball tournaments. They defeated the Houston Cougars in the finals in 2018 and 2019. SMU won it in 2015 and 2017 while Louisville and Connecticut have also won titles. Coincidentally, UConn and Louisville no longer sponsor men’s basketball teams in the American. After playing the role of bridesmaid for two straight years, Houston is the favorite to earn a spot in the NCAA tournament.
