(Tiebreaking rules below)
TOP 3 TEAMS IN EACH DIVISION QUALIFY
1st Round: 2 vs 3 Cross Conference.
Winner 2W vs 3E Plays 1E
Winner 2E vs 3W Plays 1W
Games hosted by higher remaining seed
WINNERS MEET IN FINALS ON WEDS NIGHT MARCH 8th, 2017 AT TABC. (JV Game will begin at 6:00 Varsity game will begin a half hour after the conclusion of the JV game.)
(2 TEAMS TIED)
1. HEAD TO HEAD
2. STRENGTH OF SCHEDULE
(the team that achieved their win/loss record against the schedule with the highest combined winning pct of all of their opponents, meaning the team that played the hardest schedule, wins this tie-breaker.)
3. RECORD VS PLAYOFF TEAMS BY PCT (unless both undefeated, then most wins vs playoff teams)
4. CONFERENCE RECORD
5. PLAY-IN GAME FOR LAST PLAYOFF SPOT, COIN TOSS FOR SEEDING
(3 OR MORE TEAMS TIED)
1. HEAD TO HEAD (RECORD OF ALL TIED TEAMS IN HEAD TO HEAD EVEN IF # OF GMS PLAYED IS NOT EQUAL)
STEPS 2-5 EXACTLY AS ABOVE.
EACH TIE-BREAKING STEP SERVES TO SEPARATE AS MANY TEAMS AS POSSIBLE, WHO WILL THEN BE PLACED IN THE STANDINGS IN THE ORDER IN WHICH THEY FINISH IN THAT TIEBREAKER.
IF SOME TEAMS ARE SEPARATED BY A TIE-BREAKING STEP, BUT OTHERS INVOLVED IN A MULTI-TEAM TIEBREAKER ARE STILL TIED, WE REVERT BACK TO TIE-BREAKER #1 AND REDO ALL TIE BREAKERS IN THE SAME ORDER WITH ONLY THE STATS PERTAINING TO THE TEAMS STILL TIED REMAINING AS PART OF THE EQUATION. (FOR EXAMPLE THE HEAD TO HEAD RECORD IS NOW CALCULATED AMONG ONLY THE TEAMS REMAINING IN A TIE AND NOT AMONG ALL THE TEAMS THAT WERE ORIGINALLY TIED.)
