The following tiebreaker format is utilized for determining the seeding in the Atlantic 10 Men’s Basketball Championship:

Two-Team Tie

1. Head-to-head competition.

2. Conference record of the tied teams based on winning percentage versus the highest
    common opponent and proceeding down to the lowest common opponent, if necessary, until
    one team gains an advantage.

     a.   All ties are broken in descending order.
     b.   When arriving at another pair of tied teams, use each team’s record against the tied teams
           as a group. When comparing records against a group of teams, the higher winning
           percentage will prevail. In case of tied percentages vs. the team or group of 1.000 or      
           .000, the following shall apply: 2-0 is better than 1-0; 0-1 is better than 0-2.

3. Coin toss.


Three or More-Team Tie

1. Head-to-head competition.

    a.    Use each team’s record against the tied teams as a group rather than performance   
           against individual teams. When comparing records against a group of teams, the higher   
           winning percentage will prevail. In case of tied percentages vs. the team or group of
           1.000 or .000, the following shall apply: 2-0 is better than 1-0; 0-1 is better than 0-2.

2.  If the above results in two teams remaining, the two-team tiebreaker is used.

3.  If more than two teams still remain, use the Conference record of the tied teams based on  
     winning percentage versus the highest common opponent and proceeding down to the
     lowest common opponent, if necessary, until one team gains an advantage.

     a.  All ties are broken in descending order.
     b.  When arriving at another pair of tied teams, use each team’s record against the tied teams
          as a group. When comparing records against a group of teams, the higher winning  
          percentage will prevail. In case of tied percentages vs. the team or group of 1.000 or .000,
          the following shall apply: 2-0 is better than 1-0; 0-1 is better than 0-2.

4.   Draw lots.


NOTE:  All ties will be broken in descending order.  When arriving at another pair of tied teams while comparing records, use each team’s record against the tied teams as a group rather than the performance against individual teams.  Once ties are broken, they remain broken throughout the tie-breaker process.
