The Daily Aggie :: 02/27/12 :: Aggie Women's Basketball Seeding Scenarios

The women's standings are a big jumbled mess with none of the seeds locked in except the No. 1 seed which belongs to Fresno State regardless of what happens this week. They own the head-to-head tiebreaker with Utah State who is the only team who could tie the Lady Bulldogs (it would take a major miracle for that to happen). Other than that, seeds two through eight are still up for grabs and trying to figure the potential matchups for the Aggies based on their potential seeding finishes gave us a headache but here they are.

Editor's Note: An adjustment was made in the seeding scenario. We had initially incorrectly listed Idaho as having lost to SJSU earlier in the season when in fact they have defeated the Spartans once (as have the Aggies). There is now only one scenario in which New Mexico State can earn the 6-seed instead of two scenarios. Many thanks to Kyle Doperalski for alerting us of the error.

6-seed
2-0
Aggies earn the 6-seed if Idaho finishes 0-2 or 1-1. The Aggies would win the tiebreaker with Idaho due to a win series split with Fresno State.

1-1
The Aggies earn the 6-seed if Idaho finishes 0-2 AND New Mexico State's win comes against Fresno State. The Aggies would win the tiebreaker with Idaho due to a win series split with Fresno State.

The Aggies would face Louisiana Tech if both USU and LA Tech finish 1-1 OR USU finishes 2-0 (USU earns the 2-seed in this scenario).

The Aggies face Utah State if LA Tech finishes 2-0 AND USU finishes 1-1 or 0-2 (LA Tech would own the tiebreaker with Utah State due to a win over Fresno State in this scenario and would thus earn the 2-seed).

7-seed
1-1
The Aggies earn the 7-seed if Idaho wins at least one game this week OR Idaho finishes 0-2 AND New Mexico State's loss comes against Fresno State. Idaho would then own the tiebreaker due to a series split with Hawai'i (the Aggies were swept by the Wahine).

0-2
The Aggies earn the 7-seed if Nevada loses to Louisiana Tech.

The Aggies would face Utah State if both USU and LA Tech finish 1-1 OR USU finishes 2-0 (USU earns the 2-seed in this scenario).

The Aggies face LA Tech if LA Tech finishes 2-0 AND USU finishes 1-1 or 0-2 (LA Tech would own the tiebreaker with Utah State due to a win over Fresno State in this scenario and would thus earn the 2-seed).

8-seed
0-2
The Aggies earn the 8-seed if Nevada goes 2-0. Nevada would own the tiebreaker due to a series split with Louisiana Tech.

The Aggies would face Fresno State in the first round.
