For a few days, only 11 of the 12 Horizon League teams were scheduled to participate, as UIC was banned from competing for the conference’s postseason championships due to their impending move to the Missouri Valley Conference in July. However, the conference eventually allowed the Flames to return, but they waived their rights to host championship events for the remainder of their term. Thus, UIC goes to Milwaukee as the 8th seed.

Data originally published by Bob Vetrone Jr. on Twitter in 2020 with my own additions for 2021 and 2022.

Cleveland State’s 2021 victory was the first by a Horizon No. 1 seed since Valparaiso (now in the MVC) won the 2015 crown. The No. 2 seed had won all three previous titles, while No. 4 had won in 2016 and 2017. Those two results led the conference to tinker with its tournament format for a few years. However, the stepladder is now gone.

Of course, with the conference top as even as it was in 2021-22 (five of Cleveland State’s six championship losses were courtesy of the rest of the top six), predict or bet this one at your own risk. and perils.

  • 2 seeds (4): 2011, 2018, 2019, 2020
  • 1 seed (3): 2013, 2015, 2021
  • 4 seeds (2): 2016, 2017
  • 3 seeds (1): 2012
  • 5 seeds (1): 2014

The years with an NCAA victory have arrived bold.

  • 8 seed (1): 2011
  • 13 seeds (1); 2015
  • 14 seeds (3): 2013, 2014, 2016, 2018, 2019
  • 15 seeds (3): 2012, 2017, 2021

The 8 seed (and a 5 in 2010) is an outlier, as Butler, now in the Big East, deserved. This year’s Horizon champion should end up on the 15 or 16 line, as the league is much weaker than it was at its peak.

Cleveland State: 2021 (15 seeds, 1st round)
Northern Kentucky: 2019 (14 seeds, 1st round)—2020 Horizon League Tournament Champion
State of Wright: 2018 (14 seeds, 1st round)
Green Bay: 2016 (14 seeds, 1st round)
Robert Morris: 2015 (16 seeds, 1st round, NEC member)
Milwaukee: 2014 (15 seeds, 1st round)
Detroit Mercy: 2012 (15 seeds, 1st round)
Oakland: 2011 (13 seeds, Round of 16, Summit member)
UIC: 2004 (13 seeds, 1st round0
IUPUI: 2003 (16 seeds, 1st round, member of mid-continent (top))

Youngstown State and Purdue Fort Wayne have never qualified for the NCAA Tournament.
