The 2015 Summit projected standings help determine the seeds of the teams in the 2015 Summit Championship bracket. The remainder of the season is simulated a large number of times, and the resulting seeds are used to simulate the Summit tournament.

A team's relative odds to win the 2015 Summit League Championship depend only partly on their Summit bracket seed. Winning the Summit League Championship also depends on the dynamics of the 2015 Summit bracket. In some cases, the team with a better Summit League Championship seed may actually face a harder path to the Summit League Championship championship than a team with a worse Summit tournament seed.

In addition, because Summit tournament seeds are based on win-loss records in Summit conference games, Summit tournament seeds are not always the most accurate measure of a team's true performance level. This is another reason why higher seeded teams in the Summit bracket can have better odds to win the 2015 Summit League Championship than lower seeded teams in the Summit bracket.
