It took 156 games of regular season Drew League action, but the 2017 postseason field is finally set. We’ve come a long way from the first impressions of Week 1. Here are the final standings, with the top eight teams qualifying for the postseason.
*Note that the Commissioner determined the first tiebreaker to be head-to-head, and the second tiebreaker was point differential:
The 3-7 seeds in the Walzer division all finished 7-5. LAUNFD earned the #3 seed due to head-to-head wins with the other four teams that finished 7-5 (New Edition, Home Town Favorites, Bull Dogs, M.H.P.). None of the remaining 7-5 teams swept or were swept by the other 7-5 teams, so the 4-7 seeds were determined by point differential. All other ties were broken by head-to-head matchups.
The 2017 Drew League divisional quarterfinals are now set, and will take place at Los Angeles Southwest College (now updated with times):
