: : The Mater Dei Monarhcs defeated the Ranch Christian Eagles on Tuesday night in second round of pool play in the B pool. Mater Dei ,seeded #7 in the 8 team playoff defeated Corona Centennial , the #2 seed kast Friday night and tonight they defeated the #3 seed so on Friday night Mater Dei will visit Harvard Westlake in North Hollywood and I am guessing that the winner of that game will be the pool B champion but am not sure what the tiebreaker will be as HRVARD wESTALKE LOST TO rANCHO cHRISTIAN LAST fRIDAY BUT DEFEATED Corona Centennial tonight so Rnach Christian will play CoCentennial on Friday night and if Ranch Christian defeats Centennial and HW defeats Mater Dei. the latter three will all
: : have 2-1 records and your guess is as good as mine of what happens but I suppose someone has figured it out by now. One thing is for sure and that is that tonight Devin Askew had one of the all time clutch performances in CIF playoff history in the Monarchs 76-71 win over the Eagles as he Had a stat line of 43 points on 14-19 from the field, including 7-7 from Three point country plus 5 assists and zero turnovers and a blocked shot and a steal.Askew has signed with Kentucky and I am sure they will love watching the tape of tonights game . Certainly the zenith of his high school career.
: To answer your question about tie-breakers, yes, they have it all figured out already. Here's how tie-breakers work in the CIF-SS Open Division Pool Play, according to the 2020 Playoff Bulletin (at page 18)
: Tie Breakers:
: 2 way tie- head to head
: 3 way tie- lowest seed number of wins in pool play
: 3 Way Tie: The team with the lowest combined seed points from games they won in pool play, will advance out of pool.
: 3 Way Tie Breaker Example: Record SeedPts
: Seed 1-beats 8 and 5, loses to 4 2-1 13
: Seed 4-loses to 5, beats 8 and 1 2-1 9
: Seed 5-beats 4 and 8,loses to 1 2-1 12
: Seed 8-loses to 1, 4 and 5 0-3 X
: In this example, Seed 4 advances by accumulating the lowest number of opponent seed points (9) in their pool play wins.
: Seed 1 beat 8+5= 13 pts
: Seed 4 beat 8+1= 9 pts
: Seed 5 beat 4+8= 12 pts
: So, if there is a tie between MD, HW and Rancho Christian (all with 2-1 records), here's what happens:
: #7 MD beat 2 and 3 = 5pts
: #3 RC beat 6 and 2 = 8pts
: #6 HW beat 2 and 7 = 9pts
: So in this scenario, MD would be the team that advances, because it would have accumulated the lowest seed total.
The way the formula is set up on 3 way tie, lowest seeds will get the nod to advance for the championship. Highest seed got zero chance to advance in a 3 way tie.
