Tie Breaking Guidelines For MWC Basketball Championships Seedings
All ties shall be broken in the order in which they occur, from top to bottom, in the standings. When comparing tied teams against positions lower in the standings that also are tied, those lower-tied positions shall be considered a single position for purposes of comparison.
If two teams tie for a position, and one holds a win-loss advantage during regular season play, that team receives the higher seed. If the two teams split their games during the regular season, each tied teams record shall be compared against the team occupying the highest position in the standings, continuing down through the standings until one team gains the advantage, thereby gaining the higher seed. If two teams remain tied after all tie breakers have been exhausted, a drawing shall be held by the Commissioner.
Ties Between Three or More Teams
If three or more teams tie for a position, the combined record of each of the tied teams against the other teams involved in the tie shall be compared until an advantage is gained. If the multiple tie still exists, each of the tied teams records against the team occupying the highest position in the standings shall be compared, continuing down through the standings until the tie is reduced to a two-team tie, at which time the procedure shall revert to the two-way tie breaking procedure, until the tie is broken. If teams remain tied after all tie breakers have been exhausted, a drawing shall be held by the Commissioner.
