Seed Team Conf 1st round matchup

---- ---------- ---- -----------------

#1 Green Bay 15-1 Will host winner of 8/9 game

#2 Wright St. 11-5 Will host winner of 7/10 game

#3 CSU 9-7 Would host Butler

#4 Milwaukee 9-7 Would host Valpo

#5 Valparaiso 9-8

#6 Butler 9-8

#7 YSU 7-9 Would host Detroit in play-in game

Will definitely host the 10 seed.

#8 UIC 5-11 Would host Loyola in play-in game

#9 Loyola (IL) 4-12

#10 Detroit 3-13

Green Bay clinched #1 seed.

Butler and Valpo have one game left -- against each other, and in Indianapolis. Butler has a chance to earn a split in the season series, while Valpo has a chance to sweep.

Everyone else has 2 games left: CSU and YSU travel to Chicago, Wright State and Detroit travel to Wisconsin.

When all the tiebreakers sort out below, it turns out that Wright State has clinched the #2 seed.

Either Butler of Valpo has a chance at the #3 seed by winning and if both CSU and Milwaukee lose out, or if they both split.

YSU, it turns out (as can be seen below) has clinched the #7 seed.

Detroit can perhaps move up to #9 or even #8 (though this takes a 3-way tie with YSU and Loyola, because they've already been swept by 5-11 YSU).

1. Wright State splits in Wisconsin and gets the 2 seed

YSU get at least the 7 seed because even if they tie with

UIC at 7-11, the two teams split, both were swept by #1

Green Bay, but YSU swept #2 Wright State, while UIC split

with them.

They can't get any higher than the 7 seed because even if

they tie Valpo at 9-9, Valpo's win over #1 Green Bay breaks

that tie, and even if they tie Butler at 9-9, Butler swept

YSU, and even if they tie with Milwaukee, CSU, and Valpo or

Milwaukee, CSU, and Butler or Milwaukee and Valpo or

Milwaukee and Butler or CSU and Valpo or CSU and Butler,

they have only 1 win in each of those combinations (against

Valpo; they were swept by the other 3), so they always lose

the tiebreaker.

Therefore, YSU is the 7 seed.

a. 3rd place is 11-7 -- This can be CSU, Milwaukee,

or both.

1. CSU and Milwaukee both win out

This means UIC finishes either 6-12 or 5-13,

and Loyola finishes either 5-13 or 4-14. It

also means that Wright State beats Green Bay.

CSU and Milwaukee split. They were both swept

by #1 Green Bay. Both split with #2 Wright

State. Since we are breaking the tie for #3,

we drop down to 5th place, which is either

Butler or Valpo at 10-8.

a. Butler beats Valpo

Both CSU and Milwaukee split with Butler.

1. YSU wins out to tie Valpo at 9-9

Both teams are 3-1 against YSU/Valpo,

so we drop down to 8th place UIC at

5-13.

CSU will have swept UIC while

Milwaukee was swept by UIC, so CSU

gets the 3 seed, Milwaukee the 4

seed. Butler gets the 5 seed, Valpo

the 6 seed.

2. YSU goes 8-10 or 7-11

CSU split with Valpo while Milwaukee

swept Valpo, so Milwaukee gets the 3

seed, CSU the 4 seed. Butler gets the

5 seed, Valpo the 6 seed.

b. Valpo beats Butler

CSU split with Valpo while Milwaukee

swept Valpo, so Milwaukee gets the 3 seed,

CSU the 4 seed. Valpo gets the 5 seed,

Butler the 6 seed since they swept YSU.

Even if Loyola ties with UIC at 5-13 by

beating YSU, UIC wins the tiebreaker: they

split with each other, they were both swept by

#1 Green Bay, but UIC split with #2 Wright

State, while Loyola was swept by them, so UIC

gets the 8 seed.

If Detroit ties Loyola at 4-14, they will win

the tiebreaker because the two teams split and

Detroit will have 1 more win than Loyola

against #1 Green Bay, so Detroit would get the

9 seed and Loyola the 10 seed. Otherwise,

Loyola gets the 9 seed and Detroit the 10 seed.

2. CSU wins out and Milwaukee splits or loses

out. CSU gets the 3 seed.

a. Milwaukee splits to tie with either Butler

or Valpo at 10-8

1. Valpo beats Butler

Milwaukee swept Valpo, so Milwaukee

gets the 4 seed, Valpo the 5 seed,

Butler the 6 seed.

2. Butler beats Valpo

Milwaukee split with Butler, they both

were swept by #1 Green Bay, they both

split with #2 Wright State, they both

split with #3 CSU. Since this is a

tie for 4th place, we then drop down

to 6th place.

a. YSU wins out to tie Valpo at 9-9

Milwaukee is 4-0 against Valpo/YSU,

while Butler would be 3-1, so

Milwaukee gets the 4 seed, Butler

the 5 seed, Valpo the 6 seed.

b. YSU goes 8-10 or 7-11

Milwaukee swept Valpo while

Butler will have split with them,

so Milwaukee gets the 4 seed,

Butler the 5 seed, Valpo the 6

seed.

If Detroit wins out, Loyola splits, and

UIC loses out, all 3 end up 5-13. Each

of these teams split with both of the

other two. However, Detroit will be the

only one of the three to beat Green Bay,

so Detroit would get the 8 seed. UIC

would still win the remaining tie with

Loyola by virtue of Wright State as

shown above.

If Detroit loses, ...

UIC gets the 8 seed because even if

Loyola ties with them, UIC wins the

tiebreaker as shown above.

Again, Loyola gets the 9 seed unless they

lose to YSU and Detroit beats Green Bay.

Detroit gets whichever seed Loyola doesn't

get.

b. Milwaukee loses out to finish 9-9

1. Valpo beats Butler to get the 4 seed

Milwaukee ties with Butler at 9-9. As

shown above, the tiebreaker is not

resolved before we reach 4th place. In

this case Valpo breaks the tie in favor

of Milwaukee since they swept Valpo

while Butler lost to Valpo, so

Milwaukee gets the 5 seed, Butler the

6 seed.

In a 3-way tie between Milwaukee, YSU,

and Butler, YSU was swept by both teams,

so they drop out and the above tiebreaker

still holds, giving Milwaukee the 5 seed,

Butler the 6 seed.

2. Butler beats Valpo to get the 4 seed

Milwaukee swept Valpo so they get the 5

seed, Valpo the 6 seed.

In a 3-way tie between YSU, Milwaukee,

and Valpo, Milwaukee swept both teams

and Valpo split with YSU. So again,

Milwaukee gets the 5 seed, and Valpo

the 6 seed.

If Detroit wins out, Loyola splits, and

UIC loses out, all 3 end up 5-13. Each

of these teams split with both of the

other two. However, Detroit will be the

only one of the three to beat Green Bay,

so Detroit would get the 8 seed. UIC

would still win the remaining tie with

Loyola by virtue of Wright State as

shown above.

If Detroit loses, ...

UIC gets the 8 seed because even if

Loyola ties with them, UIC wins the

tiebreaker as shown above.

Again, Loyola gets the 9 seed unless they

lose to YSU and Detroit beats Green Bay.

Detroit gets whichever seed Loyola doesn't

get.

3. Milwaukee wins out and CSU splits or loses out.

Milwaukee gets the 3 seed.

a. CSU splits to tie with either Butler or

Valpo at 10-8

1. Valpo beats Butler

CSU split with Valpo, but Valpo split

with #1 Green Bay while CSU was swept

by them, so Valpo gets the 4 seed, CSU

the 5 seed, Butler the 6 seed.

a. YSU wins out to tie Valpo at 9-9

Milwaukee is 4-0 against Valpo/YSU,

while Butler would be 3-1, so

Milwaukee gets the 4 seed, Butler

the 5 seed, Valpo the 6 seed.

b. YSU goes 8-10 or 7-11

Milwaukee swept Valpo while

Butler will have split with them,

so Milwaukee gets the 4 seed,

Butler the 5 seed, Valpo the 6

seed.

2. Butler beats Valpo

CSU split with Butler, they both were

swept by #1 Green Bay, but CSU split

with #2 Wright State while Butler was

swept by them, so CSU gets the 4 seed,

Butler the 5 seed, Valpo the 6 seed.

UIC gets the 8 seed because even if

Loyola ties with them (at 6-12 or 5-13),

UIC wins the tiebreaker as shown above.

Again, Loyola gets the 9 seed unless they

lose out and Detroit beats Green Bay.

Detroit gets whichever seed Loyola doesn't

get.

b. CSU loses out to finish 9-9

1. Valpo beats Butler to get the 4 seed

CSU ties with Butler at 9-9. As

shown above, #2 Wright State resolves

this tiebreaker in favor of CSU to give

them the 5 seed, Butler the 6 seed.

In a 3-way tie between CSU, Butler, and

YSU, YSU was swept by both CSU and

Butler, so they drop out and the above

tiebreaker still holds.

2. Butler beats Valpo to get the 4 seed

As shown above, #1 Green Bay resolves

the tiebreaker in favor of Valpo to

give them the 5 seed, CSU the 6 seed.

In a 3-way tie between CSU, Valpo, and

YSU, CSU is 3-1, Valpo 2-2, YSU 1-3,

so in this case, CSU would get the 5

seed, Valpo the 6 seed.

UIC gets the 8 seed because even if

Loyola ties with them (at 6-12 or 5-13),

UIC wins the tiebreaker as shown above.

Again, Loyola gets the 9 seed unless they

lose out and Detroit beats Green Bay.

Detroit gets whichever seed Loyola doesn't

get.

b. 3rd place is 10-8 -- This must be either Butler or

Valpo, and can also be CSU and/or Milwaukee

1. CSU, Milwaukee, and Valpo finish 10-8

Milwaukee is 3-1, CSU 2-2, and Valpo 1-3 in the

round-robin head-to-head, giving Milwaukee the

3 seed, CSU the 4 seed, and Valpo the 5 seed.

Butler clinches the 6 seed because they swept

YSU.

If Detroit wins out, Loyola splits, and UIC

loses out, all 3 end up 5-13. Each of these

teams split with both of the other two. However,

Detroit will be the only one of the three to beat

Green Bay, so Detroit would get the 8 seed. UIC

would still win the remaining tie with Loyola by

virtue of Wright State as shown above.

If Detroit loses, ...

UIC gets the 8 seed because even if Loyola ties

with them, UIC wins the tiebreaker as shown above.

Again, Loyola gets the 9 seed unless they lose out

and Detroit beats Green Bay. Detroit gets

whichever seed Loyola doesn't get.

2. CSU, Milwaukee, and Butler finish 10-8

These 3 teams each split with the other 2. All 3

were swept by #1 Green Bay. Butler was swept by

#2 Wright State, CSU split with them.

a. Milwaukee beats Wright State and loses to

Detroit

Milwaukee also splits with Wright State, so

Butler drops out and gets the 5 seed.

Milwaukee split with CSU, they were both

swept by #1 Green Bay, they both will have

split with #2 Wright State, they both split

with #5 Butler.

1. YSU wins out to tie Valpo at 9-9

Both teams are 3-1 against YSU/Valpo,

so we drop down to 8th place UIC at

6-12 or 8th place UIC and Loyola at

5-13.

a. 8th place is 6-12

CSU will have swept UIC while

Milwaukee was swept by UIC, so CSU

gets the 3 seed, Milwaukee the 4

seed.

b. 8th place is 5-13

Both will be 2-2 against UIC/Loyola.

Both will have split with #10 Detroit.

Whichever team has the higher RPI will

therefore get the 3 seed, the other

the 4 seed.

Valpo gets the 6 seed.

2. YSU goes 8-10 or 7-11

CSU split with Valpo while Milwaukee

swept Valpo, so Milwaukee gets the 3

seed, CSU the 4 seed. Butler gets the

5 seed, Valpo the 6 seed.

b. Milwaukee loses to Wright State and beats

Detroit

Milwaukee also is swept by Wright State, so

CSU gains the 3 seed.

Milwaukee split with Butler. They both were

swept by #1 Green bay. They both will have

been swept by #2 Wright State.

1. YSU wins out to tie Valpo at 9-9

Milwaukee swept both teams while Butler

lost once to Valpo, so Milwaukee gets the

4 seed, Butler the 5 seed, Valpo the 6 seed.

2. YSU goes 8-10 or 7-11

Butler will have split with Valpo while

Milwaukee swept Valpo, so Milwaukee gets

the 4 seed, Butler the 5 seed, Valpo the 6

seed.

If Detroit wins out, Loyola splits, and UIC

loses out, all 3 end up 5-13. Each of these

teams split with both of the other two. However,

Detroit will be the only one of the three to beat

Green Bay, so Detroit would get the 8 seed. UIC

would still win the remaining tie with Loyola by

virtue of Wright State as shown above.

If Detroit loses, ...

UIC gets the 8 seed because even if Loyola ties

with them, UIC wins the tiebreaker as shown above.

Again, Loyola gets the 9 seed unless they lose out

and Detroit beats Green Bay. Detroit gets

whichever seed Loyola doesn't get.

3. CSU and Valpo finish 10-8

Milwaukee loses to both Wright State and Detroit

to tie Butler at 9-9. YSU can also finish 9-9 by

winning out.

CSU split with Valpo, but Valpo split with #1

Green Bay while CSU was swept by them, so Valpo

gets the 3 seed, CSU the 4 seed.

Milwaukee split with Butler. They both were

swept by #1 Green Bay. They will both have been

swept by #2 Wright State. Milwaukee swept #3

Valpo while Butler will have been swept by them,

so Milwaukee gets the 5 seed, Butler the 6 seed.

(In a 3-way tie with YSU, they both swept YSU, so

it would still come down to the above 2-way tie)

Loyola can clinch the 8 seed by winning out if

UIC loses out (means YSU finishes 8-10).

Otherwise UIC clinches the 8 seed as shown above.

Detroit can clinch the 9 seed by winning out if

Loyola loses out. Detroit can also clinch the

8 seed by winning out if Loyola splits and UIC

loses out, as shown above. Otherwise, Loyola

gets the 9 seed and Detroit the 10 seed.

4. Milwaukee and Valpo finish 10-8

CSU loses to both Loyola and UIC to tie Butler

at 9-9. YSU can also finish 9-9 by

winning out.

Milwaukee swept Valpo, so Milwaukee gets the 3

seed, Valpo the 4 seed.

CSU split with Butler. They both were swept

by #1 Green Bay. Butler was swept by #2 Wright

State, but CSU split with them, so CSU gets the

5 seed, Butler the 6 seed.

(In a 3-way tie with YSU, they both swept YSU, so

it would still come down to the above 2-way tie)

Loyola can only tie UIC, and UIC wins that tie-

breaker as shown, so UIC gets the 8 seed.

And if Detroit ties Loyola, Detroit gets the 9

seed by beating #1 Green Bay. Otherwise, Loyola

gets the 9 seed, Detroit the 10 seed.

5. CSU and Butler finish 10-8

Milwaukee loses to both Wright State and Detroit

to tie Valpo at 9-9. YSU can also finish 9-9 by

winning out.

CSU wins the tiebreaker with Butler as shown

above and gets the 3 seed, Butler the 4 seed.

Milwaukee swept Valpo, so they get the 5 seed,

Valpo the 6 seed.

(In a 3-way tie with YSU, they both swept YSU, so

it would still come down to the above 2-way tie)

Loyola can clinch the 8 seed by winning out if

UIC loses out (means YSU finishes 8-10).

Otherwise UIC clinches the 8 seed as shown above.

Detroit can clinch the 9 seed by winning out if

Loyola loses out. Detroit can also clinch the

8 seed by winning out if Loyola splits and UIC

loses out, as shown above. Otherwise, Loyola

gets the 9 seed and Detroit the 10 seed.

6. Milwaukee and Butler finish 10-8

CSU loses to both Loyola and UIC to tie Valpo at

9-9. YSU can also finish 9-9 by winning out.

Milwaukee split with Butler and they both were

swept by #1 Green Bay.

a. Milwaukee beats Wright State and loses to

Detroit.

Milwaukee wins the tiebreaker because

Butler was swept by #2 Wright State, so

Milwaukee gets the 3 seed, Butler the 4

seed.

In a 2-way tie with Valpo, Valpo gets the

5 seed over CSU because of their win

over #1 Green Bay, with CSU getting the 6

seed.

In a 3-way tie with Valpo and YSU, CSU is

3-1, Valpo 2-2, and YSU 1-3, so CSU gets

the 5 seed, Valpo the 6 seed, and YSU the

7 seed (so in this one case, YSU still

has an impact).

b. Milwaukee beats Detroit and loses to Wright

State.

In this case, both Milwaukee and Butler were

swept by #2 Wright State. Dropping down to

5th place...

If 5th place is a 2-way tie between CSU and

Valpo, Milwaukee is 3-1, Butler would be 2-2,

so Milwaukee gets the 3 seed, Butler the 4

seed.

If 5th place is a 3-way tie between CSU,

Valpo, and YSU, Milwaukee is 5-1, Butler is

4-2, so again Milwaukee gets the 3 seed,

Butler the 4 seed.

As shown above, the 2-way tie gives Valpo

the 5 seed, CSU the 6 seed, while the 3-way

tie gives CSU the 5 seed, Valpo the 6 seed.

UIC with at least one victory clinches the 8

seed as shown before.

Detroit can get the 9 seed by tying Loyola at

4-14 as shown before. Otherwise Loyola gets the

9 seed, Detroit the 10 seed.

7. Valpo finishes alone at 10-8 to get the 3 seed

This means Milwaukee loses to both Wright State

and Detroit, and CSU loses to both Loyola and

UIC. It also means that CSU, Milwaukee, and

Butler all tie at 9-9. YSU can also finish

9-9 by winning out, but since YSU was swept by

all 3, the 4-way tie would immediately turn into

the 3-way tie.

In the 3-way tie, all 3 teams split with each of

the other 2, they each were swept by #1 Green

Bay, but CSU split with #2 Wright State while

the other 2 will have been swept by them, so CSU

gets the 4 seed.

Milwaukee gets the 5 seed because they swept #3

Valpo while Butler will have been swept by them.

Butler gets the 6 seed.

UIC with at least one victory clinches the 8

seed as shown before.

Detroit can get the 9 seed by tying Loyola at

4-14 as shown before. Otherwise Loyola gets the

9 seed, Detroit the 10 seed.

8. Butler finishes alone at 10-8 to get the 3 seed

This means Milwaukee loses to both Wright State

and Detroit, and CSU loses to both Loyola and

UIC. It also means that CSU, Milwaukee, and

Valpo all tie at 9-9. YSU can also finish 9-9

by winning out.

In the 3-way tie, Milwaukee is 3-1, CSU 2-2,

Valpo 1-3, so Milwaukee gets the 4 seed.

At this point the rules say we start over with

just CSU and Valpo, which makes a big difference!

They split with each other, but Valpo split with

#1 Green Bay while CSU was swept by them, so

Valpo gets the 5 seed and CSU the 6 seed.

In the 4-way tie, Milwaukee is 5-1, CSU 4-2,

Valpo 2-4, and YSU 1-5, so Milwaukee again gets

the 4 seed.

Again, we start over with a 3-way tie: CSU is 3-1,

Valpo 2-2, YSU 1-3, so CSU gets the 5 seed. As

has been shown previously, Valpo wins the

tiebreaker with YSU to get the 6 seed. Here again

YSU makes an impact.

UIC with at least one victory clinches the 8

seed as shown before.

Detroit can get the 9 seed by tying Loyola at

4-14 as shown before. Otherwise Loyola gets the

9 seed, Detroit the 10 seed.

2. Wright State wins out and gets the 2 seed (by beating

both Green Bay and Milwaukee)

(This might turn out to be virtually the same case...)

By the same reasoning, YSU gets the 7 seed (nothing has

really changed).

a. 3rd place is 11-7 -- This can only be CSU, who gets the

3 seed.

1. Milwaukee splits to tie with either Butler or Valpo

at 10-8 (by beating Detroit)

a. Valpo beats Butler

Milwaukee swept Valpo, so Milwaukee gets the 4

seed, Valpo the 5 seed, Butler the 6 seed.

b. Butler beats Valpo

Milwaukee split with Butler, they both were swept

by #1 Green Bay, they both split with #2 Wright

State, they both split with #3 CSU. Since this

is a tie for 4th place, we then drop down to 6th

place.

1. YSU wins out to tie Valpo at 9-9

Milwaukee is 4-0 against Valpo/YSU, while

Butler would be 3-1, so Milwaukee gets the 4

seed, Butler the 5 seed, Valpo the 6 seed.

2. YSU goes 8-10 or 7-11

Milwaukee swept Valpo while Butler will have

split with them, so Milwaukee gets the 4 seed,

Butler the 5 seed, Valpo the 6 seed.

UIC gets the 8 seed because even if Loyola ties with

them, UIC wins the tiebreaker as shown above.

Again, Loyola gets the 9 seed unless they lose to YSU

and Detroit beats Green Bay. Detroit gets whichever

seed Loyola doesn't get.

2. Milwaukee loses out to finish 9-9 (by also losing to

Detroit)

a. Valpo beats Butler to get the 4 seed

Milwaukee ties with Butler at 9-9. As shown above,

the tiebreaker is not resolved before we reach 4th

place. In this case Valpo breaks the tie in favor

of Milwaukee since they swept Valpo while Butler

lost to Valpo, so Milwaukee gets the 5 seed, Butler

the 6 seed.

In a 3-way tie between Milwaukee, YSU, and Butler,

YSU was swept by both teams, so they drop out and

the above tiebreaker still holds, giving Milwaukee

the 5 seed, Butler the 6 seed.

b. Butler beats Valpo to get the 4 seed

Milwaukee swept Valpo so they get the 5 seed,

Valpo the 6 seed.

In a 3-way tie between YSU, Milwaukee, and Valpo,

Milwaukee swept both teams and Valpo split with YSU.

So again, Milwaukee gets the 5 seed, and Valpo

the 6 seed.

If Detroit wins out, Loyola splits, and UIC loses out,

all 3 end up 5-13. Each of these teams split with both

of the other two. However, Detroit will be the only

one of the three to beat Green Bay, so Detroit would get

the 8 seed. UIC would still win the remaining tie with

Loyola by virtue of Wright State as shown above.

If Detroit loses, ...

UIC gets the 8 seed because even if Loyola ties with

them, UIC wins the tiebreaker as shown earlier.

Again, Loyola gets the 9 seed unless they lose to YSU

and Detroit beats Green Bay. Detroit gets whichever

seed Loyola doesn't get.

b. 3rd place is 10-8 -- This must be either Butler or

Valpo, and can also be CSU and/or Milwaukee (by beating

Detroit)

1. CSU, Milwaukee, and Valpo finish 10-8

Milwaukee is 3-1, CSU 2-2, and Valpo 1-3 in the

round-robin head-to-head, giving Milwaukee the

3 seed, CSU the 4 seed, and Valpo the 5 seed.

Butler clinches the 6 seed because they swept

YSU.

UIC gets the 8 seed because even if Loyola ties

with them, UIC wins the tiebreaker as shown above.

Again, Loyola gets the 9 seed unless they lose out

and Detroit beats Green Bay. Detroit gets

whichever seed Loyola doesn't get.

2. CSU, Milwaukee, and Butler finish 10-8

These 3 teams each split with the other 2. All 3

were swept by #1 Green Bay. Butler and Milwaukee

will have been swept by #2 Wright State, while CSU

split with them, so CSU gets the 3 seed.

Milwaukee split with Butler. They both were swept

by #1 Green bay. They both will have been swept by

#2 Wright State.

a. YSU wins out to tie Valpo at 9-9

Milwaukee swept both teams while Butler lost

once to Valpo, so Milwaukee gets the 4 seed,

Butler the 5 seed, Valpo the 6 seed.

b. YSU goes 8-10 or 7-11

Butler split with Valpo while Milwaukee swept

Valpo, so Milwaukee gets the 4 seed, Butler

the 5 seed, Valpo the 6 seed.

UIC gets the 8 seed because even if Loyola ties

with them, UIC wins the tiebreaker as shown above.

Again, Loyola gets the 9 seed unless they lose out

and Detroit beats Green Bay. Detroit gets

whichever seed Loyola doesn't get.

3. CSU and Valpo finish 10-8

Milwaukee loses to both Wright State and Detroit

to tie Butler at 9-9. YSU can also finish 9-9 by

winning out.

CSU split with Valpo, but Valpo split with #1

Green Bay while CSU was swept by them, so Valpo

gets the 3 seed, CSU the 4 seed.

Milwaukee split with Butler. They both were

swept by #1 Green Bay. They will both have been

swept by #2 Wright State. Milwaukee swept #3

Valpo while Butler will have been swept by them,

so Milwaukee gets the 5 seed, Butler the 6 seed.

(In a 3-way tie with YSU, they both swept YSU, so

it would still come down to the above 2-way tie)

Loyola can clinch the 8 seed by winning out if

UIC loses out (means YSU finishes 8-10).

Otherwise UIC clinches the 8 seed as shown above.

Detroit can clinch the 9 seed by winning out if

Loyola loses out. Detroit can also clinch the

8 seed by winning out if Loyola splits and UIC

loses out, as shown above. Otherwise, Loyola

gets the 9 seed and Detroit the 10 seed.

4. Milwaukee and Valpo finish 10-8

CSU loses to both Loyola and UIC to tie Butler

at 9-9. YSU can also finish 9-9 by

winning out.

Milwaukee swept Valpo, so Milwaukee gets the 3

seed, Valpo the 4 seed.

CSU split with Butler. They both were swept

by #1 Green Bay. Butler was swept by #2 Wright

State, but CSU split with them, so CSU gets the

5 seed, Butler the 6 seed.

(In a 3-way tie with YSU, they both swept YSU, so

it would still come down to the above 2-way tie)

Loyola can only tie UIC, and UIC wins that tie-

breaker as shown, so UIC gets the 8 seed.

And if Detroit ties Loyola, Detroit gets the 9

seed by beating #1 Green Bay. Otherwise, Loyola

gets the 9 seed, Detroit the 10 seed.

5. CSU and Butler finish 10-8

Milwaukee loses to both Wright State and Detroit

to tie Valpo at 9-9. YSU can also finish 9-9 by

winning out.

CSU wins the tiebreaker with Butler as shown

above and gets the 3 seed, Butler the 4 seed.

Milwaukee swept Valpo, so they get the 5 seed,

Valpo the 6 seed.

(In a 3-way tie with YSU, they both swept YSU, so

it would still come down to the above 2-way tie)

Loyola can clinch the 8 seed by winning out if

UIC loses out (means YSU finishes 8-10).

Otherwise UIC clinches the 8 seed as shown above.

Detroit can clinch the 9 seed by winning out if

Loyola loses out. Detroit can also clinch the

8 seed by winning out if Loyola splits and UIC

loses out, as shown above. Otherwise, Loyola

gets the 9 seed and Detroit the 10 seed.

6. Milwaukee and Butler finish 10-8

CSU loses to both Loyola and UIC to tie Valpo at

9-9. YSU can also finish 9-9 by winning out.

Milwaukee split with Butler and they both were

swept by #1 Green Bay.

In this case, both Milwaukee and Butler were

swept by #2 Wright State. Dropping down to 5th

place...

If 5th place is a 2-way tie between CSU and Valpo,

Milwaukee is 3-1, Butler would be 2-2, so

Milwaukee gets the 3 seed, Butler the 4 seed.

If 5th place is a 3-way tie between CSU, Valpo,

and YSU, Milwaukee is 5-1, Butler is 4-2, so again

Milwaukee gets the 3 seed, Butler the 4 seed.

As shown above, the 2-way tie gives Valpo the 5

seed, CSU the 6 seed, while the 3-way tie gives

CSU the 5 seed, Valpo the 6 seed.

UIC with at least one victory clinches the 8

seed as shown before.

Detroit can get the 9 seed by tying Loyola at

4-14 as shown before. Otherwise Loyola gets the

9 seed, Detroit the 10 seed.

7. Valpo finishes alone at 10-8 to get the 3 seed

This means Milwaukee loses to both Wright State

and Detroit, and CSU loses to both Loyola and

UIC. It also means that CSU, Milwaukee, and

Butler all tie at 9-9. YSU can also finish

9-9 by winning out, but since YSU was swept by

all 3, the 4-way tie would immediately turn into

the 3-way tie.

In the 3-way tie, all 3 teams split with each of

the other 2, they each were swept by #1 Green

Bay, but CSU split with #2 Wright State while

the other 2 will have been swept by them, so CSU

gets the 4 seed.

Milwaukee gets the 5 seed because they swept #3

Valpo while Butler will have been swept by them.

Butler gets the 6 seed.

UIC with at least one victory clinches the 8

seed as shown before.

Detroit can get the 9 seed by tying Loyola at

4-14 as shown before. Otherwise Loyola gets the

9 seed, Detroit the 10 seed.

8. Butler finishes alone at 10-8 to get the 3 seed

This means Milwaukee loses to both Wright State

and Detroit, and CSU loses to both Loyola and

UIC. It also means that CSU, Milwaukee, and

Valpo all tie at 9-9. YSU can also finish 9-9

by winning out.

In the 3-way tie, Milwaukee is 3-1, CSU 2-2,

Valpo 1-3, so Milwaukee gets the 4 seed.

At this point the rules say we start over with

just CSU and Valpo, which makes a big difference!

They split with each other, but Valpo split with

#1 Green Bay while CSU was swept by them, so

Valpo gets the 5 seed and CSU the 6 seed.

In the 4-way tie, Milwaukee is 5-1, CSU 4-2,

Valpo 2-4, and YSU 1-5, so Milwaukee again gets

the 4 seed.

Again, we start over with a 3-way tie: CSU is 3-1,

Valpo 2-2, YSU 1-3, so CSU gets the 5 seed. As

has been shown previously, Valpo wins the

tiebreaker with YSU to get the 6 seed. Here again

YSU makes an impact.

UIC with at least one victory clinches the 8

seed as shown before.

Detroit can get the 9 seed by tying Loyola at

4-14 as shown before. Otherwise Loyola gets the
