RE: CAA Tournament “If It Ended Today”
Question for those in the know for tiebreakers:

The CAA handbook is slightly unclear, what do you think?

"Here is how the seeds will be determined:
a. The two teams tied for #1 split during the regular season. (tie not broken).
b. The two #1’s had identical records versus #3. (tie not broken).
c. The two #1’s will have their records compared as a “pool” of the teams tied for #4. If an
advantage is gained, that team will be the #1 seed and the other will be #2.
In the case of the tie for 4th:
a. The teams split during the regular season. (tie not broken).
b. The teams’ records compared against the opponents’ records starting at the top of the standings
– now with the #1 seed established as the first comparison. [This will not be a “pool” comparison
of the two teams that finished the regular season tied because the tie is broken. Further support
of the reason why this is not a “pool” comparison of the tied teams is the example of two teams
tied for first, but one team swept the other and is the clear #1 seed. There would be no reason to
argue a “pool” consideration in that case].

So here's a hypothetical:

NU and Hofstra finish 12-6 each, tied for 2nd.
W&M and Towson finish 9-9 each, tied for 4th.

NU and Hofstra would both finish 3-1 vs. W&M and Towson, but NU went 2-0 vs. WM and Hofstra went 2-0 vs. Towson. Would the comparison vs. W&M and Towson be pooled? If that's the case we move down the standings and we could potentially end up in a coin flip situation for NU vs. Hofstra for #2 seed. Or would the CAA grant Towson the #4 seed due to their 2-0 record vs. W&M and then grant Hofstra the #2 seed? The last part of the tie break rules seem to imply there might not be a need to pool?
