Creighton beat Villanova on its home court and they didn’t storm the floor...this still pisses me off that we aren’t in the BE because our president was over seas having a romantic rendezvous...allegedly.

Go on

Where was our President when the whole BE thing went down?

I know where Creighton’s President was.

Asia I think but I can tell you he knew we were cooked already. The other Jesuits hated him and were not going to let us in because of that

Virginia Tech just took down #5 Duke.

The VA Tech game was our biggest win this season. Too bad S2 screwed the pooch on the season, as I am pretty sure that the entire team would have built on that win, and could have made a serious run for the Big Dance.

SLU>Vtech>Duke confirmed

Caught the game on ESPN. That was a nice comeback by Tech. Enjoyed the win since we beat them. Hopefully Tech will be ranked next week. I did say to myself, how did we beat these guys, then again, UMASS, A10 bottom feeder, beat Providence.

The answer is simple, wins are not determined solely by statistics or records. There are times when a win comes out of nowhere and a bottom feeder beats a top team. You can do all the numbers you want and have no explanation except to say for that particular game the roles were reversed for some reason.

Rhode Island down by 17 with 90 seconds left in the first half.

if I didn't know better I would say they are tanking it.

Rhody shot 21% in the first half and 7% (1 of 14) from the Arc. Senior night ain’t going too well.

So what happens if SLU, St. Joe, and VCU all end up 10-8?  That is a split season series scenario.  What is the next tiebreaker criterium?

Bet you wish you hadn't asked.
 
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.
