I will see if i can get this down so everyone understands....
Missouri State White
* Denotes teams playing for a place in the standings but ineligible for the league tournament. Iowa Black filled the spot vacated by Purdue.
Ok, here is where it can appear tricky.
Teams will play two games against every team within their own conference.
Teams will play two games against only ONE division from the other conference. This was determined via a coin toss.
The North Division teams from the Northern Conference will be playing the South Division teams from the Southeren Conference and vice versa for the other two divisions.
Teams may be moved or added next season but this general alignment will still stand as of now.
So, each team will be playing a total of 8 teams for 2 games each, totaling 16 games. If a team goes undefeated they would finish with 32 points. For standing purposes there is only a Northern Conference and a Southern Conference. The top THREE teams in each CONFERENCE will advance to the league playoffs. The WINNER of each CONFERENCE will get a first round bye in the playoffs.
I hope this helps everyone understand how the Silver Division of the MACHA breaks down this season.
So for example Northwestern split with Western already this season. Those games are NOT MACHA coference games and do not count towards any standings.
