The Middle Atlantic Conferences Men's Basketball Tournaments are the annual conference basketball championship tournaments for the NCAA Division III Middle Atlantic Conferences: the MAC Commonwealth and MAC Freedom.

The MAC has held a tournament more-or-less every year since 1947, although the current two-conference format has only been played since 2001. They are each a single-elimination tournament and seeding is based on regular season records.[1]

The winners, each declared champion of their respective conference, receives one of the MAC's two automatic bids to the NCAA Men's Division III Basketball Championship.
