Washington guaranteed eighth or ninth seed in Pac-12 Tourney

Washington can finish as high as sixth in the Pac-12 standings with a win Saturday against USC in the regular-season finale.

However, the Huskies are locked into the No. 8 or 9 seed heading into next week’s Pac-12 Tournament. Washington will either play Oregon, Utah, Stanford or California at noon Wednesday in the first round at the MGM Grand Arena.

The winner plays No. 1 seed Arizona noon Thursday in the quarterfinals.

Here’s a look at the four-way tie for sixth place scenarios:

Thanks to Christian Caple and Gregg Bell who helped me crunch the numbers.

And here’s the Pac-12 tie-breaking formula, according to its online media guide.

For a two-team tie
A. Results of head-to-head competition during the regular season
B. Each team’s record vs. the team occupying the highest position in the final regular standings, and then continuing down the standings until one team gains an advantage (when arriving at another group of tied teams while comparing records, use each team’s record against the collective tied teams as a group rather than win-loss against individual tied teams)
C. Won-lost percentage against all Division I opponents
D. Coin toss

To break a multiple-team tie
A. Results of collective head-to-head competition during the regular season among the tied teams
B. If more than two teams remain tied, each of the tied team’s record vs. the team occupying the highest position in the final season standings, and then continuing down through the standings, eliminating teams with inferior records, until one team has an advantage (if the process hits a group of tied teams, refer to the two-team tiebreaker “B.”)
C. Won-lost percentage against all Division I opponents
D. Coin toss
