The Missouri Valley Conference (MVC) Basketball Tournament is one of the top showcases of talent in college basketball. The MVC has produced some of the most memorable college basketball teams in the history of the sport, and the tournament champion has made a habit of making a deep run in the NCAA Tournament. The MVC Tournament has been held at the Scottrade Center in Saint Louis, Missouri, since 2007 and has been held in St. Louis since 1991. The tie to St. Louis has led the tournament to be nicknamed "Arch Madness", in reference to the iconic Gateway Arch in St. Louis. The winner of the MVC Tournament receives a coveted automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament.
