Independently covering the OVC since 2011. To learn about us, click the button below.

The OVC has released their official tiebreaker scenarios, which are attached below. These include the six-win scenarios I didn’t go into in-depth on yesterday, and some on higher seeds (such as EKU and Tennessee State)

The big six-win scenarios are the four-team scenarios, which would leave a team out of the tournament, namely either UT Martin or Tennessee Tech.

2013 OVC Men’s Basketball Tournament Tiebreaker Scenarios

Belmont, Eastern Kentucky, Morehead State, Murray State, Southeast Missouri and Tennessee State have clinched spots in the field.

Two spots remain open for Eastern Illinois, SIUE, Tennessee Tech and UT Martin.

Belmont is the No. 1 seed. Murray State (for having won the West) is No. 2. Eastern Kentucky and Tennessee State will be the No. 3 and 4 seeds (order to be determined).

Jacksonville State is not eligible for the OVC Tournament. They would be counted in tiebreaker scenarios but cannot receive a final seed.

If Eastern Kentucky and Tennessee State are tied at 12-4 …
(Note: This assumes TSU beats EKU on Saturday)
The teams split the season series 1-1
TSU would be 1-1 against No. 1 seed Belmont and be the No. 3 seed
EKU would be 0-2 against No. 1 seed Belmont and be the No. 4 seed

If Morehead State and Southeast Missouri are tied at 8-8 or 7-9 …
MOR won the season series 1-0 and would be the No. 5 seed; SEMO would be No. 6
(Note: If JSU finishes at 8-8 and figures into the tiebreaker – but cannot receive a seed because
they are ineligible – there would not be a difference and MOR would still finish higher than SEMO)
