Playoff Implications

  • Providence has clinched the #1 seed and is expected to rest key players against Atlantic City.
  • If Richmond beats Philadelphia, Richmond would be the #2 seed, Philadelphia would be #3, and Washington would be #4 and would be expected to rest key players the next day against Connecticut.
  • If Philadelphia beats Richmond and Washington beats Connecticut, Philadelphia would be the #2 seed, Washington would be #3, and Richmond would be #4.
  • If Philadelphia beats Richmond, and Connecticut beats Washington, Philadelphia would be the #2 seed, Richmond would be #3, and Washington would be #4. (If Delaware also beats Baltimore, a fourth tiebreaker, this one based on points differential, would determine the #3 and #4 seeds, but realistically Washington would have no shot at the #3.)
