Editor: The following is part of a press release from mvc-sports.com.
(St. Louis, MO) – The 2017-18 season has been an historic one for Missouri Valley Conference men’s basketball as the league is in the midst of one of its best starts in the past half century. Six teams enter the second week of December in the Top 100 of the RPI (Ratings Percentage Index), and Loyola’s win at No. 5 Florida on Dec. 6 marked the first Top-5 road win by a league member since 1967.
The Missouri Valley Conference will conduct its 28th St. Louis-based postseason men’s basketball championship when the State Farm MVC Tournament takes the hardwood at Scottrade Center, on March 1-4, 2018. The State Farm MVC Tournament, also known uniquely as “Arch Madness” to Valley fans, will be played at Scottrade Center for the 24th time. With 28-straight years at the same neutral site, Arch Madness is the second-longest neutral site tenured collegiate tourney in the nation.
2018 State Farm MVC Basketball all-session tournament tickets go on sale Friday, Dec. 8. There is a new seating configuration in the lower bowl at Scottrade Center.
• 10 a.m. CT at the Scottrade Center box office

Editor: There are potentially fewer actual seats to be purchased this season due to the new Scottrade Center configuration for basketball and for Arch Madness.
