SEEDING for Bracket Play
All teams are in one big pool. If there are 12 teams, then USBA will seed the teams for bracket play 1-12 with the best team in pool play being seed 1 and so on. USBA will first look at the pool play record,
seeding all the team that were 3-0 first and then all the teams that were 2-1 and then seeding all the teams that were 1-2 and then seeding all the teams that were 0-3. If only two teams are tied then USBA
will first look to see if head-to-head competition will break the tie. If not, point differential will be used. If three or more teams are tied then USBA will NOT use head-to-head competition to break the tie. USBA will directly go to point differential to determine the tie break. A plus/minus maximum of 15 points is first used (meaning if a team wins by 23 points they will only get a "+15" for the point difference).
If the plus/minus of 15 maximum points doesn't break the tie, then USBA will go to actual point difference. If for some reason the actual point difference doesn't determine the tie, then USBA will flip a coin to break the tie. THE POINTS FOR/AGAINST FIGURED BY THE SCHEDULE SOFTWARE DOES NOT FACTOR INTO SEEDING AT ALL.
The higher seed is HOME in bracket play.
Be sure to check the time/location of your game as some of the gyms being used were NOT used for pool play.
