#343 Conference Tournament Q. How are the seeds determined for the Conference Tournament? What are the tiebreakers?
  A.

Overall Conference record, at the conclusion of the regular season, is used to seed teams 1 through 12. There are also several tie-breakers that may be necessary.

The following procedures are set up to establish seeding for the championship and to break ties. Follow the appropriate steps in order.

Two-way Tie (2 teams in the same division conclude the regular season with the same conference record)

  1. Regular season head-to-head results (one game or two). If the tied teams split their two games, then proceed to Step #2 below.
  2. Overall record. If the tied teams had identical overall winning percentages, then proceed to Step #3 below.
  3. RPI ranking

Multiple-Team Tie (3 or more teams in the same division conclude the regular season with the same conference record)

  1. Teams are viewed as a “mini-conference” when comparing head-to-head results. The team with the best record (as determined by winning percentage, even if unequal games) vs. the other teams in the mini-conference gains the advantage. If two or more teams, but not all, have the same best winning percentage in the mini-conference (likely implies same number of games played in mini-conference), only those specific teams advance to the next tie-breaker Step 2 below. After the top team in a mini-conference is determined, the next team is ranked by its record in the original mini-conference. If there are any remaining teams tied by their record in the mini-conference, then they will proceed to Step #2 below to determine the higher seed.
  2. Overall record. If the tied teams had identical overall winning percentages, then proceed to Step #3 below.
  3. RPI ranking
