That 1 seed is more important than ever this year. The 2 and 3 seeds each have to battle the top 3 twice to win it all. That's a tough task.

Wouldn't WKU be the 2 seed? They beat ODU head-to-head.

It doesn't really matter as we have to play them again before the tourney. Whoever wins that one (assuming no upsets the rest of the way) will probably be the 2 seed.

I was using the Score Mobile app for standings. They may not have the correct tiebreakers in their system. I probably should have used the CUSA website.

Depends if overall record is taken to account before head to head. I don't know the answer. My guess is the CUSA site SHOULD (I repeat, should) have it correctly.

How would ODU be a 2seed and WKU a 3seed. We're tied and we beat them so we have the tie breaker

RE: 2018 CUSA Tourney Bracket
If it played out with higher seeds winning I would rather play ODU instead of Marshall to get to Middle....of course all 3 losing first round works. If Marshall is on they will be a hard out. The benefit of playing ODU (if Middle is next) you get use to playing a physical game and not going from a uptempo to a grind with tough defense. Neither one will be a easy win.

According to the Conference USA website, ODU is indeed in 2nd place. I guess overall record trumps head to head?

I doubt it's overall record. We did not play as strong an ooc slate as WKU.

In this instance, I think that they were taking into account fanbase hygiene.
