Standings determine seedings for
Tie breaking applied. Rule 3 puts team 3 in third place, rule 6 puts
team 6 in fourth place.
Determination of Standings
Percentage will be used to determine
the standings in the event an unequal amount of games are played.
Tie games will count as half a win for the purpose of calculating percentage.
Teams with the same percentage will be considered tied for a position in
the standings unless one of those teams has more wins. In that instance
the team with the most wins will be considered ahead in the standings.
If teams still remain
tied then the following tie breaking rules shall apply to the regular season
standings. This shall then be used for the purpose of determining the seed
to be used for the playoffs. The following tie breaking rules also apply
when percentage is used to determine the standings.
Tiebreakers are as
1 - Head to Head winner
2 - Record against common opponents
3 - Record against common opponents from top of the standings, one team
at a time
4 - Record against teams with a record of .500 or better
5 - Strength of schedule - based on total wins by all opposing teams played
6 - Flip a coin
Note: in the instance of a multiple
team tie the tie breaker rules are applied until the first winner or winners
emerge. The tie breaker rules are then reapplied from the top to the remaining
