Solution 3
We can name the top three teams as and . We can see that , because these teams have the same points. If we look at the matches that involve the top three teams, we see that there are some duplicates: and come twice. In order to even out the scores and get the maximum score, we can say that in match and each win once out of the two games that they play. We can say the same thing for and . This tells us that each team and win and lose twice. This gives each team a total of 3 + 3 + 0 + 0 = 6 points. Now, we need to include the other three teams. We can label these teams as and . We can write down every match that or plays in that we haven't counted yet: and . We can say and win each of these in order to obtain the maximum score that and can have. If and win all six of their matches, and will have a score of . results in a maximum score of . This tells us that the correct answer choice is .
