Calculations for OUA Playoff Seeding

For the 2019-20 season, with the introduction of three divisions, the OUA playoff seeding is as follows:
  1. Top 3 teams in each division, plus next best 3 teams qualify for the playoffs
  2. Division leaders are seeded 1, 2 and 3 and the remaining 9 teams are seeded by winning percentage
  3. OUA tie-breaking rules in effect for any ties
I will update this program as different tie-breaking scenarios develop over the next few weeks. At various times, you might see the message 'Tie breaking rules not yet complete'. Either the situation involves non-playoff teams, or I have not yet determined how to evaluate the rules.
