Current Playoff Seedings

With two days left in the regular season, below is the current playoff picture. Per our bylaws, two points are awarded per win, and one point for a tie. If points are tied in the standings, the winning percentage will determine the seeding. If still tied after calculating the winning percentage, head-to-head play is factored in. If for some reason, the teams tied played twice, the higher seed will be awarded to the team that had the better head-to-head record against the 1 seed, 2 seed (if necessary, 3 seed (if necessary), 4 seed (if necessary), 5 seed (if necessary), 6 seed (if necessary), 7 seed (if necessary), and 8 seed (If necessary).

  • BankESB currently the 1 seed with 32 points and an .800 winning percentage (winning the head-to-head vs PeoplesBank) would host St. Joseph's, the 8 seed with 8 points and a .222 winning percentage.
  • PeoplesBank, the 2 seed with 32 points and an .800 winning percentage, would host DiFranco Realty, the 7 seed, with 8 points and a .235 winning percentage.
