Overall record. Explain please. We play them again in a couple weeks and should we beat them it will be a moot point but if not then a true tie. I think we have a harder in conf schedule than anyone else. Play all the top teams twice. Not sure anyone else does.

Here's a list of tiebreakers:

So head to head is first. If we split then it'll go to win percentage against top teams. Then to overall record but it seems extremely unlikely to get to that point.

So assuming we split the games and are still tied and using current records. We're both 0fer against MT, we're tied for second so move on to fourth place which is Marshall. We're 1-0 against Marshall and you're 2-0. Both are 100% but the rules state 2-0 beats 1-0 so you'd be 2nd seed and we'd be 3rd.

ODU plays Marshall again but now it occurs to me that it won't get that far because WKU plays Middle again. If WKU wins then they have the tiebreaker (1-1 vs. 0-1). If they lose, then 0-1 beats 0-2, and ODU gets the second seed.

Still a lot of basketball to be played

Certainly. Just pointing out that a WKU-ODU tiebreaker won't go any further than Middle Tennessee, since WKU plays them twice and ODU once.

Gotcha, I was just using current situation but you're right.

We are factoring an ODU loss in Huntington right? Because we are going to win that game. I would love to be in that side of the bracket with ODU.

Yeah, I'd like that matchup a lot too.

It is going to take more than an ODU loss in Huntington to land both teams in the same side of the bracket.

Unless, of course, you guys are aiming a 6th or 7th place finish in conference play.

Marshall can certainly help their case this week with a L against UNT. With a loss to UTSA already under their belt they could be set to lock-in the coveted 6th seed in the conference tourney!

You know the Marshall motto, a slightly more derelict version of ours, "Aim Medium High"

So if Western wins out, probably not happening, but lets go with it....

Western would get the #1 seed over Middle in all tie breakers?
