(The following rules are from the PSO Basketball Rule Book.)

Rule  17. Team Standings / Playoffs

Art. 1  Team standings are based on win-loss record and determine seeding in the tournament.  In the event of a tie, the online standings may not be correct.

Art. 3 Teams that forfeit more than 1 game are disqualified from the playoffs.

Art. 4  After the above articles are applied, at least the top 4 teams in each division will advance to the end-of-season tournament.  If space and time allow, more teams may be added to the bracket and every effort will be made to take all teams into the playoffs.

Art. 5  For teams eligible for the playoffs, the tie breaker for team standings will be determined in the following order until the tie is broken.

  1. Any team that has forfeited a game will take the lower seed.
  2. Result of head-to-head competition.
    1. If the teams played each other more than once, only the last game between the two teams will count in the head-to-head tie breaker.
    2. A tie between 3 or more teams is broken by record in head-to-head competition between all the teams involved in the tie.  Only the last game between teams that played each other more than once will be counted in this tie breaker.  If a team is eliminated from the tie (either taking the highest or lowest seed), and other teams are still tied, those remaining tied teams will break their ties by going to the start of the tie breaker rules.
  3. Teams that are tied but did not play each other will break their tie by using their record vs. common opponents.
  4. Lowest points against.  In divisions with more than 9 teams, the points against will only include games against the teams involved in the tie and opponents that were played by all teams in the tie (common opponents). If an opponent did not play all teams involved in the tie then no games with that opponent will be included in the points against.  In divisions with less than 9 teams, the points against will only include games against the teams involved in the tie (the last time the two teams played if the two teams involved played more than once) and the opponents of the tied teams (the last time the two teams played if the teams involved played more than once).
  5. Record vs. highest seeded team not involved in the tie (continues down seeds until the tie is broken).
  6. If the tie is not broken by the tie breakers above, the random online standings will be used.
