Shouldn't Huntsville be at 6 1/2 with Macon losing Saturday

Huntsville needs 15 pts to clinch a spot which makes their magic number 7 1/2. If Macon were to win out the max points they could get would be 62 pts and Huntsville presently holds the tiebreaker so all they have to do is equal 62 pts.

How did Knoxville go from 5 to 3 when Columbus didn't play?

Columbus isn't a factor....it's Macon that drops the number.  Knoxville won and Macon lost which drops the number by 2

Not in the magic numbers.  Huntsville holds the tie breaker over Macon...Fayetteville does not so both teams magic number is 5 1/2 even though Fayetteville is 1 point ahead in the standings.

Then why does the description say "decreases with each win and #9 team loss". Columbus is 9th.

ahousedivided beat me to it.

 

Until everyone has played the same number of games, the Win Percentage column is the only reliable gauge of where the teams stand.
