Does anyone know how the final league standings work when games are missed? Does the best W/L percentage win or the most league games win the season? Also, will teams make up/reschedule any lost games?
So far as I know, no plan currently exists. Or at least has been shared publicly. One hopes that there have been discussions internally. Maybe we play back-to-back around 2/27 when we were supposed to play Davidson again. It is going to get tricky because multiple games will be involved

If they play back to back, it very well could mean VCU also loses a home game to one of the better teams in the conference. I would not want to play Davidson on their court in back to back games. That arena has not been that friendly to VCU.

yeah, I hear you. But the alternative may be trying to figure out who wins the conference when teams don't play the same number of games. The unbalanced schedule is bad enough

Also, two road wins would be better for the resume (wonder if they'll both count as road games if they do this)

Ohio State got in the playoffs after playing only six games.

I noticed, the other day, that the back to back scheduling was being used in the league.

My guess would be W-L % in conference games would be the first thing.... what they do if teams have same win % but played diff amounts of games & either did not play each other or split against each other.... I have no idea.

There are already several conferences playing back to back games against the same opponent because they planned their conference schedules accordingly. Not sure why the A10 does not have a public plan on how to handle postponed games. Seems like a rudderless ship. Man the lighthouse!

The upside to playing two games at Davidson is that they will be borderline top 75, so a split gives you a Q1 win. Going .500 in Q1 games usually gets you a single digit seed on Selection Sunday.

It's also much harder to win two on the road. Particularly with a young team.
