How are Standings calculated using Games Back?

Follow

The default placement of teams in the standings is calculated by using “Team Differential” to determine how many “Games Back” teams are behind the team with the greatest Team Differential.  

  • Default sport scoring is 1 point for a win, half a point for a tie, and zero points for a loss.
  • This is true for all sports except Soccer and Indoor Soccer, which use 3 points for a win, 1 point for a tie, zero points for a loss.
  • Team Differential = Wins minus Losses of each Team.  For example, Team A has a 5-2 record so their Team Differential is 3 while Team B has a record of 5-3 so their Team Differential is 2.
  • Games Back = the Team Differential of the best team minus the Team Differential of each team in the Standings, divided by 2.
    • In other words, Games Back =  (Team Differential - Team Differenial ) / 2.  For example, Team A has a Team Differential of 3 while Team B has a Team Differential of 2, so since (3 minus 2)/2 = .5, Team B is .5 games back.
  • After Games Back, tie breakers are using to arrive at the final standings.
