I didn't mention this, but it popped into my head early this morning.
If teams are tied in winning percentage in the conference record or overall record, total number of wins matter. This is why, for example, Milwaukee has the Horizon auto bid instead of Butler at the moment. The two teams have an identical conference winning percentage, but the Panthers have one more league win.
This is the kind of stat that will even itself out as the year goes on, though.
