MAAC Men's Lacrosse Tiebreakers

Two-Way Tie

A.     If there is a tie(s) for any place(s) in the standings, then the results of the in-season head to-head competition shall be used to break that tie.

B.     In more than single round-robin sports, if two teams split their in-season games, then the committee shall use the best record against the highest-seeded remaining teams in descending order as the tiebreaker.

      When arriving at another group of tied teams while comparing records, use each team's record against the collective tied teams as a group (prior to their own tie-breaking procedure).

Multiple-Team Tie (3 or more teams)

A.     For either single or multiple round-robin sports, three or more teams tied are viewed as a "mini-conference" when comparing head-to-head results. The team with the best record vs. the other teams in the mini-conference gains the advantage. If all the teams in the mini-conference have the same mini-conference record, proceed to B below. If two or more teams, but not all, have the same best record in the mini-conference, only those specific teams advance to the next tiebreaker step.

After the top team(s) in a mini-conference is determined, the next team is ranked by its record in the original mini-conference. If there are two remaining teams tied by their record in the mini-conference, then head-to-head results will determine the higher seed. If the teams split their games then proceed to B below.

If there are three or more teams remaining tied by their record in the mini-conference, they would then form a new mini-conference and follow the procedure again starting at A.

B.     The next step in breaking all or part of a mini-conference tie is each team's record vs. the team occupying the highest position in the league, continuing down through the division standings until one team gains an advantage.

When arriving at another group of tied teams while comparing records, use each team's record against the collective tied teams as a group (prior to their own tie-breaking procedure). If  all  teams  in  the mini‐conference  remain  tied,  proceed  to  C.   If  some,  but  not  all  of  the  teams  remain  tied,  then those tied  teams  start  the  tie‐breaking  process  over  to  determine  their  seed  within  the mini‐conference.  

C.     The  next  step  is  to  compare  the  number  of  goals  allowed  among  the  tied  teams.   The  tied  teams shall  be  seeded  in  order  of  goals  allowed.   The  team  with  the  fewest  goals  allowed  is  seeded highest.  If  all  teams  in  the  mini‐conference  remain  tied,  proceed  to  D.   If  some,  but  not  all  of the teams  remain  tied,  then  those  teams  start  the  tie‐breaking  process  over  to  determine  their seed within the  mini  conference.  

D.     The  next  step  is  to  compare  the  number  of  goals  allowed  against  all  conference  teams.  The  tied teams  shall  be  seeded  in  order  of  goals  allowed.   The  team  with  the  fewest  goals allowed  is seeded highest.  If  all  teams  in  the  mini‐conference  remain  tied,  proceed  to  E.   If some,  but  not all  of  the teams  remain  tied,  then  those  teams  start  the  tie‐breaking  process over  to  determine their  seed.  

E.      The  next  step  is  to  compare  the  RPI  of  the  tied  teams  (based  on  the  most  recent  RPI rankings released  by  the  NCAA  prior  to  the  start  of  the  MAAC  Championship).   The  tied  teams  shall  be seeded  in  order  of  RPI;  the  team  with  the  best  RPI  is  seeded  highest.   If  all  teams  in  the mini-conference  remain  tied,  proceed  to  coin  flip/random  draw.   If  some,  but  not  all,  of  the teams remain tied,  then  those  teams  start  the  tiebreaking  process  over  to  determine  their  seed.  

General Tie breaking rules

A.     When comparing scores for a tiebreaker, a win takes precedent over a tie, and a tie takes precedent over a loss.

B.     If ties still exist, then the Commissioner or his designee shall use a coin toss to break the tie.
