The America East tournament kicks off on Thursday, and the tournament features an interesting format. The first three rounds will be played at Chase Arena in Hartford, CT, while the final will be played at the home gym of the highest seeded team to make the final. The play-in game features two of the worst teams in Division I men's baskeball -- including one-win Binghamton -- and the winner will probably struggle with Stony Brook.
