     Tie-breaking Procedures:
            1. If two tied teams met twice during the regular season and one of the two won both games, the winner shall be awarded the higher seed.
            2. If two tied teams split in two games during the regular season, compare each team’s record against the team occupying the highest position in the standings
     and continue down through the standings until one team gains the advantage, thereby winning the higher position.
            3. If three or more teams are tied, compare the combined record of each of the tied teams agains the other teams involved in the tie until an advantage is gained.
     (Example: Team A’s combined record against both Team B and Team C as compared to Team B’s combined record against both A and C, etc.)
            4. If the provision of (3) above fail to resolve a tie involving three or more teams, compare each of the tied team’s records against the team occupying the highest
     position in the standings and continue down through the standings until the tie is reduced to a two-team tie, at which time revert to items (1) and (2) above or until
     the tie is broken.
            5. If the above provisions fail to resolve a tie, the team with the higher RPI for that season will receive a higher seed (source for RPI: Collegiate Basketball News).
