The Fairleigh Dickinson Knights are one of the teams that have already secured a spot at the NCAA Tournament, however they are still set to meet the Merrimack Warriors in the 2023 NEC Tournament championship game. The 2nd seed Knights (19-14, 10-6 Northeast) advanced after winning their semifinal 70-50 versus St. Francis.
