--West Virginia and Pitt are tied for third at 12-5. They split their head-to-head meetings, but the Panthers earn the three seed by virtue of their victory over regular season champ Syracuse. 

--Louisville can finish no better than sixth and no worse than seventh (night game!). The only way U of L can be the seventh seed is if they lose to Syracuse, Georgetown beats Cincinnati and Notre Dame loses to Marquette. If the Irish and Hoyas both win and Louisville loses, all three are 1-1 in the three-team mini-conference, so the Cards' victory over Syracuse would earn them the six seed. 

--South Florida owns the head-to-head tiebreaker with Seton Hall for ninth-place.

--Cincinnati swept Connecticut and therefore owns the head-to-head tiebreaker for 11th-place.

--Rutgers owns the head-to-head tiebreaker with St. John's for 13th-place.
