The eight playoff teams were determined using a power point system. Teams were awarded 100 points for each official league victory, and 10 bonus points for every league win that opponent has.

While the power point system was used to determine qualifiers, it was not used to determine final seedings.

After the qualifiers are determined, the coaches of the qualifying teams ranked the teams 1-7 (coaches cannot rank their own teams) and those votes were used to determine seeding.
