What's in a seed? Every year, coaches and athletic directors get together to determine the seeding for the year's Greater Middlesex Conference Tournament. As you will see below, seeding is very important. No team lower than a sixth seed has ever won the GMCT, and only unseeded Piscataway in 1968 was a seed lower than a six that reached the finals. While the top seed has enjoyed the most success, teams in that position have shown to be mortal in some years.
