(WXYZ) -- The Horizon League announced its 2021 men's and women's basketball tournament brackets Thursday.

First round games will be played February 25, with quarterfinals March 2, both on campus sites.

Semifinal and championship games will be held March 8-9 in Indianapolis.

The conference says it will use an adjusted formula (factoring in league winning percentage, strength of schedule, weighting road wins vs. home wins and number of league games played to determine seeding this season), due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on team schedules.

The conference plans to announce the final seeding in both brackets after the end of the regular season on February 20.

The women's tournament bracket includes 11 teams instead of 12 due to Detroit Mercy's decision to suspend its season in January.
