A quick heads up as we move into weeks 11-13: Traditionally, these matches have paired up teams in different divisions strictly according to their division ranking (1 vs 1 seeds, 2 vs 2 seeds, and so on). This season we plan on adjusting seeds up or down by 1 slot to avoid repeat matchups and allow teams to play new opponents when possible. For example, if the 5 seeds in the two divisions have already played each other this season, we may match up the 4 and 5 seeds or the 5 and 6 seeds instead. Minimizing the number of neutral-table matches will also be a factor in these decisions.
Good luck finishing out the regular season!
