So I had to look up how this thing works:
Seed 7 hosts Seed 8 - Winner of that game gets the #7 seed.
Seed 9 hosts Seed 10 - Winner of that game moves on to play at the Seed 7/8 loser. Loser of Seed 9/10 game is OUT.
Loser of 7/8 hosts winner of 9/10 - Winner is Seed #8, loser is OUT
So it’s important we stay at least at 8 to have two shots of making the regular playoffs. Good thing we have the tiebreaker over Indiana, that is BIG.
