    Happy to be corrected on this one! I just didn't know about the tie-breaker sequences.

    You are correct, Waite21. According to ecachockey.com, the first tie breaker is total points earned in head-to-head matchups. Since Dartmouth’s win came in regulation and Yale’s in OT, Dartmouth earned 4 points to Yale’s 2.

    So Dartmouth comes to HFH next weekend, while Yale goes to Colgate.

    I think Dartmouth wins the tiebreaker over Yale and finishes 11th.

    The first tiebreaker is points earned in head-to-head games between two tied teams.

    Dartmouth and Yale split their two games, but Yale's win came in overtime, while Dartmouth's came in regulation.

    So if I have this arcane new scoring system figured out correctly, Dartmouth ended up with more points than Yale did in those two games.

    Are you sure about 11th and 12th? Since Dartmouth lost in OT, they earned one point so they ended up tying Yale with 21 points each. They split their season series, with Yale winning in OT in the first meeting and Dartmouth won the second meeting 1-0. Which comes down to total wins (both regulation and OT, no shootouts). If that is tied, then it comes down to records vs. the Top 4.

    Union beat Dartmouth in OT, 3-2.
    Union finishes in 7th, SLU in 8th, Brown in 9th, Princeton in 10th, Yale in 11th and Dartmouth in 12th.

    If he plays well against Harvard, then Coach Smith has a decision to make. Does he stick with Marshall for the playoffs, or does he go back to Watson, who appeared to have the #1 goalie spot locked down before recently having some shaky starts?
    I would go with Watson still. Better year overall. If Marshall stands on his head tomorrow, I would rethink, but as of now, I would pick Watson

    You are correct. Hope that we get a good matchup for the 11th seed

    Correct, RB. We can’t finish anywhere else but 6th.
    Waite has some good points. Since the Harvard game means nothing to either team (Harvard will finish 3rd), expect Marshall in net. And it will be an interesting decision next weekend. It may depend on which team we play.

    I have it from a reliable source that Liberty League told RPI If they want to host in BB spectators had to be allowed or they were out of tourney.
    I hope the ECAC does the same thing

    The blatantly obvious question you conveniently and “gratuitously” failed to ask us if it’s safe to invite Liberty League basketball fans into a stuffy heated RPI gymnasium, then how in the world is it not “safe” to open an unheated cavernous HFH to fans ? The answer is there is no good reason… nor is there any science to back the ban.

    The double standard by the administration is nothing short insulting… and they’ve hidden it in a composite schedule to avoid any detection …
    There is of course Weird Science. As I recall Kelly LeBrock was a hottie in that one. Seems these days you can use science or statistics to prove or disprove just about anything you want.
