The tournament is divided into two divisions, the Seniors' division, which is further subdivided into the Men's tournament, for male collegiate players, and the Women's tournament for female collegiate players. The other division is the Juniors' which is also subdivided into two tournaments for the male and female high school athletes.

The UAAP basketball sport has a rich history of schools establishing dynasties. UE won a record seven consecutive basketball titles from 1965 to 1971 albeit the third one was a shared championship with UST. Ateneo had a 5-year winning streak from 2008 to 2012. Two other schools ended their championship streak at four. UST won it from 1993 to 1996 and La Salle from 1998 to 2001.

Championship in basketball is the most coveted title that schools aspire for during a UAAP season, but such aspirations have resulted in many controversies in the league. There are protests filed by the member-schools against each other almost every season. Ironically, the league has a handbook of its rules and regulations.

Tournament formatEdit

Pre-first expansion formatEdit

Before the UAAP's first expansion, teams would play a single round robin where the team with the best record would be crowned champions. If two or more teams are tied, they would be declared co-champions. No quotient system or knockout games were used to break ties.

First expansion formatEdit

Teams play a double round robin. The winner of the first round play the winner of the second round in a 1-game championship to determine the champion. Ties for round winners are broken by knockout games.

If a team wins both rounds, it is automatically declared the champion, regardless if it was a sweep or not. If a team fails to win either rounds, but ends up with a better over-all record than either of the round winners, that team will challenge the second round winner for a championship slot against the first round winner.

Second and third expansion formatEdit

Teams play a double round robin. The top two teams (over-all record) after the double round robin play in the Finals with the #1 seed holding a twice-to-beat advantage. If a team sweeps the double round robin, they are automatically declared champions.

Final four formatEdit

The tournament currently uses the Final Four format, first implemented in 1993. The Tournament begins with a double round robin elimination, where a team plays the other teams twice to determine which teams will qualify to the semi-finals (also called Final Four). The top four finishers enter the Final Four phase.

Sweeper's advantageEdit

Previously, if a team sweeps the double round robin, they are automatically declared champions. However, after UST's sweep in 1993, it was modified so that the sweeping team would automatically qualify to the best-of-three Finals. After UE swept their way to the Finals in 2007, it was again modified so that the sweeping team would now automatically qualify to a best-of-five Finals, holding a 1–0 game advantage.

Regular final fourEdit

If no team sweeps the double round eliminations, the four top teams (and tiebreakers, if applicable) qualify for the regular postseason.

The regular post-season is divided into the semi-finals (also called Final Four) and the Finals. In the semi-Finals, the two top seeds (#1 & #2) have a twice-to-beat advantage against the lower seeds (#3 & #4).

The surviving teams face off in a best-of-three finals, where the team which notches two wins first wins the championship.

Step ladder final fourEdit

If a team wins all of the games in the elimination round, the step ladder format is used, where the unbeaten team has a bye up to the best-of-5 finals holding a 1–0 game advantage. The third and fourth seed will figure in a knockout game; the winner of that game will face the second seed with a twice-to-win disadvantage. The surviving team meets the first seed at the Finals.

Notes
  1. ^ During the 1-game championship, the game was declared as a no contest prior to the third quarter as both coaches refused to issue to the officials their respective starting lineups for the third quarter. The UAAP Board later ruled the championship series as a tie and declared UE and UST as co-champions.
  2. ^ UE's juniors' division championship win was overturned after it was discovered that the team had over-aged players.
  3. ^ Prior to 1980, the UST "Nuggets" had 6 UAAP Juniors titles.
  4. ^ Top seeded teams Adamson and UE's wins were forfeited after it was discovered that the teams had over-aged players.
  5. ^ De La Salle, holding a twice-to-beat advantage in the finals, defeated FEU. DLSU had a player with 5 fouls within the game for a very brief period. The table officials had mistakenly allowed the player to stay in the court for less than 10 seconds. FEU protested the game within the prescribed period and a replay was ordered by the UAAP Board. FEU was given the title after De La Salle failed to appear on the replay date. The controversy was elevated to the FIBA and BAP which sided with La Salle[citation needed]. FEU needed to win one more game after this. However, the board's lack of organization decided to hand over the Tamaraws the controversial title.
  6. ^ De La Salle admitted to have unknowingly fielded two ineligible players for the previous 3 years, from 2003-2005. However, the admission was made months after learning about the ineligibility. The UAAP Board forfeited their 2004-05 championship title and had to return their trophy. As a result, FEU was awarded the men's basketball championship for the 2004-2005 season. De La Salle team standings from 2003-2005 were revoked and De La Salle was suspended in the 2006-07 season from all UAAP events.[3]
  7. ^ The UAAP Board decided to forfeit the 11 wins of league leading Adamson after it was discovered that they have fielded an ineligible player that season.[4]
  8. ^ The UAAP Board decided to declare both Adamson and UST as co-champions after they decided to cancel the rest of the season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[5]
