Butler clinches #1 seed with 1 Wright St. loss or victories over UIC and Detroit. If Wright St. wins out and Butler loses to either UIC or Detroit, Wright St. gets the #1 seed via tie-breaker (2-0 against Butler).

Wright St. clinches #2 seed with 2 more wins.

CSU can achieve the #2 seed by winning out while Wright St. loses out. Even if Milwaukee also wins out, they would be first to drop out of the 3-way tie because they are the only team of the 3 that hasn't beaten Butler.

Milwaukee can achieve the #2 seed by winning out while Wright St. loses out and CSU loses at least one.

Also, CSU clinches at least the #3 seed by beating Milwaukee tonight, since they will have split and CSU is 1-1 against Butler while Milwaukee is 0-2.
