Fun With QOWI
Since Hope is the only viable Pool C candidate from the MIAA, I can't see a 7 in-region loss Calvin having even the remotist of chances.Lets say Tri-State win the MIAA Tournament Championship
Regardless of who TSU beat in the final Hope would get the automatic bid by being the MIAA's regular season champ, talk about a stressless matchup if they face TSU.
Hope's QOWI would like this
TSU win over Hope.............9.8
TSU win over Adrian...........9.58
Damaging for seeding purposes, but the Dutchmen would be dancing which is what we in Holland want.What if Adrian wins the MIAA Tournament
Hope's QOWI would look like this
Adrian win over Tri-State........9.36
Adrian win over Calvin............9.36
Either of these results would be the death of Hope's Pool C chances.
So you can see, Adrian winning Friday would put Hope in the already known postition of having to root against the Bulldogs.What if Calvin wins the MIAA Tournanment
.......gets a bit interesting here
Calvin win over Hope.............9.9---respectable, but firmly on the bubble as a Pool C candidate.
Calvin win over Adrian...........10.21--- respectable, but probably enough to get a C bid, but would likely be one the last C's taken.What if Hope wins the MIAA Tournament
Obviously the auto-bid goes to Hope, but QOWI would still factor in seeding and pairings, and possibly hosting although doubtfull Hope's in that position.
Hope win over TSU........9.9------not real impressive for seeding, but hey it would be a stressfree game, since Hope would be in win or lose
Hope win over Calvin......10.11----looks good, might get a 3 or 4 seed,
.......wait a minute lets back things up hereHope over Calvin = 10.11Calvin over Adrian = 10.21
So, let me get this straight, its more beneficial to Hope's QOWI to lose to Adrian and root for Calvin to beat Adrian ?
Lets also keep in mind Wheaton is still alive, winning the CCIW tournament would add .1 to all of Hope's QOWI calculation.
Go Wheaton, Go Calvin ?
