The 2022-23 SEC season is now a few weeks in and a number of teams have made statements early on in the year. As the conference continues to pile on the wins, the depth of the SEC has been on display early on with a number of teams sporting near-spotless records. The early-season competition should make for an exciting finish down the stretch and heading into this year’s conference tournament.

Tiebreaker Rules, three or more teams tied

When three or more teams are tied, the following procedure will be used in the following order until the tie is broken. If two teams remain tied after a tiebreaker provision, the two-team tiebreaker formula will be used.
