The six teams will be split into two pods with the first pod containing the No. 1, No. 4 and No. 5 seeds and the second pod having the No. 2, No. 3 and No. 6 seeds.

    Each team plays the two other opponents in its pod and one opponent outside of its pod. The team with the best composite record in each pod advances to the championship game.
