Determination of Home Team
For first-round games during championship competition, the highest-seeded team
shall be designated as the home team. In subsequent games, the home team shall be
determined according to a formula applied by the games committee.
In determining which of two teams in any game will be the home team, the games
committee or the NCAA game representative shall designate the home team using the
1. The institution that has been the home team the fewer number of times in that
2. If the two teams are equal in this respect but unequal in the number of times
they were the visitor, then the team that has been the visitor more often will be
designated the home team.
3. If the two teams are equal in the number of times that they have been home and
visitor, the games committee or the NCAA game representative shall observe the
following procedures in the order stated:
a. If the two teams have met previously in that particular tournament, the
visitor in the previous game shall be the home team in the game in question
(Exception: In a two-team tournament where both teams have been the home
team twice, the fifth game will be determined by a coin flip);
b. The team that was visitor in its preceding game shall be the home team, unless
both teams were visitors in their preceding games; or
c. If the above procedures do not resolve the matter, the home team shall be
determined by coin flip. The higher seeded team can determine whether they
will call the coin toss, or defer the call to their opponent.
