1. If 2 Teams are tied with the same number of Wins and Losses:
The results of the regular season game(s) against each other are considered.(ie.head-to-head comparison.)
The team with the greatest number of Wins against the other tied team gets the higher standing.
Two teams that have an equal number of Wins against each other may play a pre-playoff game to break the tie, if both sides agree.
If a pre-playoff game cannot be played due to gym constraints, timing., etc. the County Coordinator will flip a coin to break the tie.
2. If more than 2 Teams are tied with the same number of Wins and Losses:
The results of all the regular season games between the tied teams are considered (head-to-head comparison).
Tied teams are ranked based on the Win/Loss ratio for all the games played between the tied teams. The larger the ratio, the higher the Standing. For example, consider Teams A,B and C who all have the same number of Wins and Losses in their Division; A played B twice and split, B played C twice and split and A played C once and Won.The Win/Loss ratios for A = 2/1, B=2/2, and C=1/2.In this example, A would receive the higher Standing, B comes next and C last. Note, not all the teams in a tie situation may have played each other an equal number of times, but that does not matter.The total Win/Loss ratio with the other teams in the tie is used.
If 2 or more teams have equal Win/Loss ratios for all the games played between them, theoretically, the teams could play pre-playoff games to determine standings, if all sides agree and time permits. (For example, if Teams A,B and C are tied, three games are needed to break the tie: A-B, A-C and B-C). However, multiple pre-playoff games typically cannot be scheduled before Playoffs begin, so the County Coordinator will flip a coin for each tie breaker game that is needed.
3. Other Playoff Standing questions
Center Teams are not eligible for Playoffs, but game results with Center Teams do count in the Standings
Games may be forfeited if all possible options for a makeup game have been exhausted. The reported Loss of the forfeiting team, and Win for the opponent, does count in the Standings.
