The reigning, defending Horizon League champion Detroit Titans are set for a chance to repeat, but the road may very well be an encore performance. Just like last year, the #1 seed Valparaiso Crusaders will host the tournament in the quarterfinals & semifinals and also the title game, should they reach that far. If not, the #2 seed Titans will host the championship at Calihan Hall. With Valpo & Detroit earning a bye into the semifinals, the #3 seed Wright State Raiders also received a bye, but will compete in the quarterfinals.

Starting off the 2013 Horizon League Tournament will be #6 Youngstown State hosting #7 Loyola this Tuesday night. The winner will move on to face Wright State, which in turn will take on Detroit in the semifinals. As for Valpo, they await the winners of the 1st round as #9 Milwaukee travels to #4 Green Bay and #5 UIC host #8 Cleveland State. The road to the NCAA tournament begins this Tuesday night.
