How UConn got the 9 seed instead of Seton Hall (Other than SHU shitting the bed against DePaul)


Got this from the UConn Blog:

So how did the Huskies get here? Let's give this a shot:

  • Seton Hall's loss moved the Huskies into a tie for 9th with the Pirates. Both finished 8-10 in the conference.
  • Since they split their regular season series, the conference tiebreaking procedures meant that their record against the best team in the conference would decide seeding. If their records were equal (or if no team could game a decisive advantage with an unequal amount of games) then we move down the list to the next team.
  • Both teams lost to Syracuse.
  • Both teams lost to Marquette.
  • Georgetown, South Florida and Cincinnati all finished 12-6. Both teams finished 1-2 against those teams.
  • Both teams lost to Louisville.
  • Both teams beat West Virginia.
  • Rutgers and St. John's tied at 6-12. UConn went 1-1 against those teams and Seton Hall went 2-1. Since the Huskies could have matched Seton Hall's record with another game, we don't stop there.
  • Finally, we get to Pittsburgh and Villanova, who went 5-13. UConn went 2-0 against those teams and Seton Hall went 1-1. The tie is finally broken.

Simple, right?
