Tiebreakers

The following system will be used to break ties for seeding purposes into the conference playoff:
1. Head-to-head record amongst all teams tied.
2. Cumulative record against each team from the top down of those teams tied. (i.e. if two teams are tied and have split their doubleheader, the record against the #1 team will be considered. If teams are still tied, then record against the #2 team will be considered and so on down through the standings until the tie is broken). 
3. Record of those teams tied versus teams .500 and above at completion of regular MIAC season. (MIAC contests only).
4. Coin flip
