I've already solved this problem for the League. Just off the top of my head, here are some possible solutions. Conduct the joint men's and women's tournaments at:
(a) the regular season champion men's team in even years and the regular season champion women's team in odd years
(b) either the regular season champion men's or women's team, depending upon which team had the highest cumulative home attendance
(c) either the regular season champion men's or women's team, depending upon which team finished with a greater margin of victory over the second place team
and finally, the greatest idea of all time:
(d) at the school with the best combined men's and women's regular season records
If the Ivy League were to adopt any of strategies (b), (c) or (d), the media attention would be overwhelming. If part of the goal of these tournaments is to attract the press, pick either (c) or (d) and our conference will get more attention than it has since Princeton upset UCLA.
Penn and Princeton fans should be salivating over (d) because the Quakers and Tigers will own the women's side as long as their current head coaches remain on the job.
You're welcome, America.
