Here’s how ties in the conference win percentage are decided in the regular season for seeding the SEC tournament.

A. Won Lost record of head-to-head competition between the tied teams.

B. Both teams’ win-loss record against highest-seeded common opponent.

C. Few runs allowed in head-to-head races. If there has not been a head-to-head competition between two tied teams, the fewest runs against all common opponents are allowed.

D. Few runs allowed against all opponents.

E. Coin toss by the Commissioner.

2. Three-team tie (or more). If three or more tied teams have three different records against each other, they will be seeded in best percentage order. Otherwise, once the tie has been reduced to two teams, the two-team tie-breaker procedure will apply. The following procedure is used in the following order until the tie is broken:

A. Total win-loss percentage of games played between the tied teams.

B. Win-loss percentage of tied teams versus highest-seeded common opponent.

C. Few runs allowed in head-to-head races. If there was no head-to-head competition between the equal teams, the fewest runs against all common opponents are allowed.

D. Few runs allowed against all opponents.

E. If three or more teams are still tied, the commissioner will conduct a draw.
