CHAMPIONSHIP FORMAT
The 2015 USCAA Basketball National Championships will consist of four divisions—two men’s and two women’s. Each division will be a single-elimination, consolation tournament. A first round loss eliminates a team from championship contention, but all teams are guaranteed at least two games in the tournament. Consolation brackets will match losing teams from within divisions.

PARKING
Parking will be available on campus at Penn State Fayette. Buses are not permitted to turn down the driveway to Maltho. Buses should drop teams off at top of hill (Maltho) or in front of the Community Center (Main Arena) and proceed to the back end of the student parking lot at the front of campus. Spectators may park in the Community Center parking lot or lower student parking lot on campus. See campus map.
