Trine host with outright championship or tie for first with only Albion

Albion can only host with outright championship

Olivet can host if 3 way tie with Trine/Albion


Best possible seeds for Hope or Calvin is #2 which requires a tie with Trine/Albion.  Trine wins both those tie-breaks for host.  Albion is 3rd seed in both cases.

Only 4 way tie possible is Trine, Calvin, Hope, Albion.......they would be seeded in that order.


Breaking ties between Olivet/Calvin, Olivet/Hope is dependent on next weeks results or final standings.   Calvin owns the tie-break over Hope.

Alma/Kzoo tie-break could be supper fun.  Split season series, and at the moment have identical wins and losses in the league.  Can't find my tie-breaks sheet but we delve into conference road records and 2nd half record at some point.  Last one favors Kzoo


Lots more tie-breaks for things like a tie for 2nd that need next weeks results, or least become more clear after Wednesday.  Hope, Olivet and Calvin with the right results can all host a first round game.

Are you going to try and make any of the MIAA Tournament games, depending on where the tourney is hosted?

Yes, I plan on attending a game next Wed. night and the semi-finals and finals regardless of location.

I haven't been to Trine's new facility yet. I'm hoping Albion beats Calvin and then loses to Hope and Trine takes care of business...

One more home game and a trip to Angola would make for a fun week.

This year... anything seems possible. Could I see Hope winning their next 5 games... which would mean getting the 3 seed, winning at home against Alma/Kalamazoo and then going down to Algola and beating Albion and Trine? Yes. Could I see them losing tomorrow night to Olivet, this weekend at Kresge, and getting bounced at Calvin or Olivet before ever making it to MTI? Yep, I could see that happening too.

I feel like I could paint a similar story for every MIAA team. Even a host Trine could potentially end up playing a 4 or 5 seeded Olivet in the semis, a team that's beat them twice this season.

What exciting parity! Almost feels like playoffs start tomorrow night.

I know that some of us had mixed feeling about whether we liked a 6 team tournament or not, but it sure has brought us an exciting finish to the season with every game being key in deciding who gets in wand where do they play.  I realize this season (with all the "parity" in the league) would be exciting with a 4 team tourney as well, but I do like where we are. 

Just been thinking about Kalamazoo - who we all wrote of 1/2 way through the season (at least many did).  They have a shot at the tournament, and then who knows - the way they played this past week they could beat anyone.

I would still like to see a return to the 8-team format, but I'll take the 6-team format for now. Limiting to 4 teams would have been awful this year.

Agree whole-heartedly!  We need all 8 teams in the tournament every year.

Wednesday rooting interests guide

Trine---  already clinched 1 seed or 2 seed, win combined with Albion loss clinches at least a Co-Championship

Albion---  Win clinches a 1 seed or 2 seed, win combined with Trine loss clinches at least a Co-Championship

Olivet---  Win clinches a home game

Calvin---  Win or clinches a home game at minimum

Hope---  Win combined with Albion win clinches a home game
             Win combined with Calvin win does nothing for Hope
              loss to Olivet clinches 5th seed

Alma/Kzoo---- 6th seed will be determined by results on final day.

No if Alma beats Kzoo they would be tied and it would head to tie breakers to decide the 6 seed.

Though if Olivet gets the 3 seed and Kzoo gets the 6 that would put both teams back at Cutler, the scene of the post game fight.

Perez is in the house tonight at Hope. The officiating has been... a mystery to fans on both side. Coach Ernst looks perplexed with some of the calls. Hope canít miss a 3 tonight.
