Playoff Format: 2013 N.E.B.A.S. /Bergen All Stars

The regular N.E.B.A.S./ Bergen All Stars season will end on Sunday, June 9, 2013. The last makeup games to decide a playoff position can be played up until Monday June 10, 2013.

The top 4 teams will make the playoffs with the traditional NEBAS / Bergen All Stars Tie Breaker system in place to decide position.

The semifinal round will be played any day between June 11 and June 15, that works for both teams and the 2013 FINALS will be played on Sunday, June 16.

 

Tie Breakers

In case of ties, tie breakers will be (a) Head to head competition, (b) Intra-divisional play, and (c) POINT SYSTEM

 

1 point is awarded for a win

 

0 point is awarded for a loss

 

-1 for forfeit

 

If teams are still tied after the first (head to head) and second (intra division record) tie breaker format, the team with the most cumulative points for wins will break the tie.  A victory against a team that had a final record of 6-4 would be worth six (6) points.  A victory against a 2-8 team would be worth two (2) points and so on down the line.

 

If two teams were tied and one team lost to a 7-3 team and the other team lost to a 5-5 team, the team that lost to the 7-3 team would win the tiebreaker.  We believe that is the wrong approach.  We have to look at the wins not losses as the criteria.  Teams should be rewarded for defeating teams with good final records, not losing to them.

 

After a winner is determined in the event of a three-way tie, that has been decided by the point system, the two remaining teams that are tied will repeat the tie breaker format starting with (a) head to head competition, (b) Intra-divisional play, and (c) POINT SYSTEM.

 

Example:        Team 1                                                Final Record               9-1

                        Team 2                                                Final Record               9-1
