3 teams tied in a basketball league. Would each team be a co-champion? A customer is asking me and google isn't helping. You type "3-way" in google and come up with some pretty astonishing results.

Argh. I'm just gonna tell this dumbass customer that I confirmed without a doubt that they are all "co-champions". Case closed.

Different leagues would likely have different rules. Did one team sweep the other head to head, better divisional record, etc

But back to the three way thing...womens volleyball FTW

This happened to my high school football team. There was a three-way tie for league champion. They called it Tri-league Champions. Still have the stupid patch sewed onto my letter jacket.

Oh, and womens volleyball, FTW.

I don't believe you and will have to perform extensive research on this matter myself...

If there are no clear cut tie breaking procedures, then yes they all have a claim.

They're all tied and the issue isn't how to dictate who the champion is, it's how to describe them on the plaques. Co-champions? Tri-champions? Tri-league champions?

I would think that simply, "Champions" would be the way to go.

Does, "co" mean two? Couldn't you have three co-champions?

This. No real reason to take it away from them on the actual trophies. They are all champions...

Yep.

Maybe you could make it a big trophy and cut it into three parts lengthwise, and each team gets one-third of the trophy. That'd be kind of cool.

Depends on the league. For instance, the Big 12 rules allow co-champion if both teams end up with the same record even if one team has the head to head win(s).

Talking hoops here, btw.
