The 2017 Ohio Valley Conference Women's Basketball Tournament was held from March 1–4 at Nashville Municipal Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee.

Format

The OVC women's tournament is a traditional single-elimination eight-team tournament, seeded with the #8 seed facing the #1 seed in the first round, #7 facing #2, and so on. There is no reseeding, so if the #8 team were to defeat the #1 seed it would continue in the tournament playing the team which would have faced the #1 seed in the subsequent round (winner of #4 vs. #5).
