Note: Win! Take care of business and you will get in!
Playoffs (Straight from Chsaanow.com): The top 16 teams in the classification based on the final RPI rankings will be placed into the post-season bracket. If a conference champion is not ranked in the top 16 based on the RPI ranking, they will replace the lowest ranked team that is not a conference champion in the top 16. The seeding committee will be made up of 1 member from each conference. No coaches are permitted to serve on the committee.
Seeding Criteria (once qualifiers are determined)
Seeding numbers 1-8 will be seeded according to the final RPI standings and will be home teams in Round 1. Teams that are seeded numbered 9-16 will be seeded using RPI and geography. When possible, conference opponents will not be paired against one another in the first round.
Conference champions not ranked in the top 16 of the final RPI will be placed in the bracket but conference champions are not guaranteed a top 8 seed.
