Tournament Tiebreakers

Hi everyone,

I know there's a post like this every year, but I wasn't able to find the answer as to what the third tiebreaker would be between two teams with the same conference record. Just taking a quick look at the standings, if Binghamton were to win at UNH and at UMBC (a big if, I know) and UNH lost out, then both Binghamton and UNH would would have three conference wins.

1st tiebreaker - H2H (both would have beaten each other once)
2nd tiebreaker - Record against top teams in conference (they both would have a win against each other, Maine and UMBC)
3rd tiebreaker - ?

Does anyone know what the third tiebreaker is?

Thanks ahead of time.

Re: Tournament Tiebreakers

This from a thread a few years ago:
1. H2H
2. Strength of victory (if two teams are tied, the team with more wins against the third place team gets the tiebreaker)
3. Road winning % (in the league)
4. Higher RPI (according to College RPI Report)
5. Coin flip

Re: Tournament Tiebreakers

I don't think College RPI report exists anymore does it? The only RPI sites I know of now, other than the one the NCAA releases once/week, are:
