Softball: Big East Tournament Update

Softball has been kinda screwy this year.  USF was scheduled to play 22 conference game, but thanks to the weather (and some sub-standard facilities), 4 of those games have been canceled.  That seems to be the trend for other Big East teams as well.  Throw in the fact that not all teams play each other and the some series are 2 games while others are 3 games, and the outcome is a headache trying to figure out the seeding and clinching scenarios for the Big East softball tournament. 

Well, it seems like some of the clouds are clearing.  Based on this past weekends results (or non-results, thanks to mother nature), it appears the USF ladies are now the first team to clinch a berth the the Big East Tournament in Louisville, KY.

Here's how I came to that.  USF currently has 5 games remaining, and has a win percentage of .923.  Now lets suppose the ladies were to lose those final 5 (I pray that doesn't happen, but for the sake of the statistics just go with it), and also suppose all the remaining 12 teams were to win their remaining games (I know its impossible, but again just go with it);  USF would finish with a win percentage of .667.   Villanova (.333), Seton Hall (.364), Providence (.450), St. John's (.500), Rutgers (.579), Georgetown (.600), and UConn (.619), with their best efforts cannot catch the Bulls.

I know it seems pretty sound, but somehow I'm hesitant because of the screwy nature of the season.
