Now that the regular season is complete, the 2022 NSIC Men's and Women's basketball tournament brackets have been released.

This year, six teams from both the North and the South divisions on both the men's and women's brackets with the top four seeds receiving first round byes.

The Augustana men grabbed the No. 1 seed after their regular season NSIC championship and their top five national ranking.
