Basketball Tournament Rules

• Teams must play against a minimum number of different teams throughout regular season to be considered for the tournament seeding. This minimum is set by the commissioner at the beginning of the season.

• Seeding is based on standing after regular season is over.

• Standings are based on a point system.  Over the course of the season each win is awarded 1 point, each tie is awarded ¹/₂ point, and each loss is awarded 0 points. Each team's point total is divided by the number of games that they played; teams are ranked by this number.  There are three ways to break a tie, in order they are: head to head competition, most number of wins, and finally a coin toss.

• In each division, if necessary, there will be a preliminary round to finalize the top 8 seeds of the tournament.  The bottom 2x teams will playoff where x is the number of teams more than 8 in the division.  The highest seeded team will play the lowest seeded team etc.  The higher seeded team will host the playoff game if possible.

• The tournament will be seeded regularly for a top 8 single elimination bracket.  The highest seeded team will play the lowest seeded team etc.  The higher seeded team will host the playoff game if possible.

• All tournament games will be single elimination.
