The behavior of Bard-type pivoting algorithms for the linear complementarity problem with a P-matrix is represented by an orientation of a hypercube. We call it a PLCP-cube. In 1978, Stickney and Watson conjectured that such an orientation has no facet on which all even outdegree vertices appear. We prove that this conjecture is true for acyclic PLCP-cubes in dimension five.
