Official WCC Basketball Tiebreakers

Post by PilotNut on Wed Feb 25, 2009 2:31 pm

Per the "Official" WCC handbook:

Section 3. Determination of Seeds/Tie-Breaker.
(a) All conference teams will be seeded based on the order of the final regular season conference standings.


(b) If there is a tie in the standings, regardless of the number of teams involved, the following factors will be used, in this order, until all ties are broken:

(1) Head-to-head competition.
(2) Won-Loss record versus each league member (or the cumulative record of teams tied in a position) based on descending order of finish in the final conference standings.
(3) This comparison on a descending basis will continue until seeding is complete. If a tie still exists, the final deciding factor will be the teams' placement in the most recent Collegiate Basketball News Company RPI published by Jim Sukup.


(c) In the event of a tie involving more than two teams, the same tie-breaking process will be used until one team is removed from the deadlock.

(1) Once a team is removed from the tie, the remaining ties are broken by reverting back to the first step in the procedure (head-to-head competition).
(2) The procedure will then continue (comparing results on a descending basis), always reverting back to head-to-head competition to break remaining ties.


(d) If there is more than one tie in the standings, the tie which can be broken via the earliest tie-breaking step will be broken first.

(1) The review will begin with the lower tie.
(2) If the lower tie cannot be resolved under step one (4.b.1), the higher tie will be considered.
(3) If the higher tie cannot be resolved via step one, the lower tie will be reviewed under step two (4.b.2).
(4) If the lower tie cannot be resolved under step two, then the higher tie will be considered under step two.
(5) This process of alternating consideration will continue until one of the ties is resolved.
(6) Once a tie is resolved, the remaining tie will revert to step one of the system.



I will have to re-sharpen my pencil and make sure I have done my estimations correctly, but I think I have... the numbers are supposed to indent under each letter, but I couldnt get it to format correctly...

nice find. I can get an hard indent on my Mac using <option>-space. If you are using a PC try <Alt>-space.

Is that the "official" RPI that the NCAA selection committee uses? Or are all those RPIs out there the same? I think it is kind of funny if it is just some random dude's RPI. Personally, I would go with Sagarin rating.

That formula really made my head hurt. Come on, team, make this a non-issue!

This isn't a 'Marta' deal is it? Jim Sukup?! That's his name? What fun he must have had growing up.

You'll be happy to know that Mr. Sukup tries to get "out west at least once a year"...

It doesn't say he watches basketball when he's here. He just walks around.

And it appears "out West" is Wisconsin to him.

I will try to get his itinerary next year. When I come "out west" I will meet up with him wearing my Pilots gear and we can have a nice chat regarding the West Coast Conference.
