Tip for conferences:
breaking ties

Posted: Feb 17, 2014

In addition to my duties here at PrestoSports, I have worked in a conference office for over a decade. Through that time I have tried to find ways to take the busy work out of sports information.

As a fellow conference user, I am committed to helping you and your members make the most of the PrestoSports system (and perhaps make your jobs a bit easier in the process).

From time to time, I will be reaching out with tips and tricks as well as questions for your members to make sure you are using the network to its fullest. If you have a specific topic you would like to hear more about, let me know!

To start, you likely spent some time this President’s Day Weekend gearing up for winter tournaments and agonizing over potential tiebreakers. Did you know can use the power of the PrestoSports network to compare records of teams head to head and see common opponents?

To use this feature, view a networked standings page in the website tab and click “compare teams”.

Here is a blog we posted on the feature (http://blogs.prestosports.com/2010/04/20100430_compare) and a brief video showing this comparison for a few NECC teams this season: https://www.prestosports.com/video/conf_breaking_ties.swf

Please share this tip with your Commissioners or others on your staff that are assisting with seeding. If you have a suggestion for another comparison we don’t have, please drop me a note.

Thanks,

Robb
