TWO-WAY TIES
1. In the case of a two-way between teams in the final standings for regular-season League play, the following process will be used until all ties are broken and the seeding process is completed (ties will be broken in rank order beginning with the highest seed):

A. Head-to-head competition — the higher seed will go to the team that has won the most League contests played against the other team involved in the tie (in the sport of volleyball, both sets and individual games will be considered).

B. If a tie still exists, a comparison of records will be made between the tied institutions starting at the highest possible seed and continuing through the lowest seed, if necessary.

C. Sport specific tie-breaking procedure, if any (see Sport Specific regulations below).

D. Comparison of records versus out-of-League common opponents.

E. Coin flip.

MULTI-TEAM TIES
2. In the case of multiple ties (more than two teams tied for the same spot), the following process will be used: Note: The entire process for multiple-team ties must be completed. The Patriot League does not revert back to the two-way tie formula once the multiple-team tie has been resolved.

A. Records between the tied teams will be evaluated to determine if one team won more contests against the other tied institutions.

B. If a tie still exists, a comparison of records will be conducted for each team starting with the highest seed not involved in the tie and continuing through the lowest seed, if necessary.

C. Sport specific tie-breaking procedure, if any (see Sport Specific regulations).

D. Comparison of records versus out-of-League common opponents.

E. Coin flip (two teams) or draw (multiple teams).

Below is the sport-specific tie-breaking procedure, if applicable:

Men’s Basketball Specific Tiebreaker:
a. NCAA Men’s Basketball RPI (NCAA.com) published on the day (or the next day that a report is available) following the final regular-season League game to determine the higher seeded team. The team with the higher RPI will receive the higher seed.
