The 2019 Great American Conference Men and Women’s Basketball Championships will be held in the Bruin Fieldhouse at Bartlesville High School on March 7-10, 2019. 

This will be the eighth consecutive year these championships have been hosted by the Bartlesville Sports Commission, and the twelfth year the Commission has hosted an NCAA Division II men's and women's basketball tournament at the venue. It is an 8 team, single-elimination conference.

Since the Commission has reportedly opted not to bid on the conference for next year, this will be your last chance to attend or help out at the championship in Bartlesville. Please bear in mind that the state high school basketball championships will overlap this event on March 7-9 this year.
The first session will start at noon on Thursday, March 7. The championship games will start at 1:00 on Sunday. The teams are very closely grouped at the top which should lead to some terrific games throughout the 4 days. Local standout Hailey Tucker with the Southwest Bulldogs is having another sensational year after being named “GAC Player of the Year” the past two years. 

Tickets can be purchased at the door prior to all games. Sessions include two games on the same day: 12/2:15 or 5:45/8. Sunday's championship games are designated as a single session. All seating is general admission.
  • All-Session Pass: $55
  • Student All-Session Pass: $27
  • Family Single-Session: $30
  • Single-Session: $12
  • Student Single-Session: $7
