PLAYOFF SEEDING TIEBREAKERS
1. Head to head competition ‐ winning percentage * against all teams tied.
2. Combined winning percentage* against all teams above those tied.
3. Winning percentage* against above teams beginning in rank order^.
4. Winning percentage* against teams below tied teams in descending order^.
5. Best road winning percentage*.
6. Coin flip.
*Winning percentage: When comparing records against a single team or a group of teams, the higher winning percentage shall prevail, even if the number of games played against the team or group are unequal. (Example: 2‐0 is better than 3‐1, but 2‐0 is not better than 1‐0).
^Rank order comparison: When arriving at another pair of tied teams while comparing records, use each team’s record against the collective tied teams as a group (prior to their own tie‐breaking procedure), rather than the performance against the individual tied teams. (Example: Team A and Team B tie for fourth place. Team C and Team D tie for second place. The Team C‐D tiebreaker is settled first using tiebreaker criteria. If the Team A‐B tiebreaker reaches the second‐place team(s) in Criteria No. 3, Team A and Bs record will be compared collectively against Teams C and D, not individually against the winner of the C‐D tiebreaker first.)
