Using the NCAA Tournament Bracket, choose who you think will win each game all the way to the championship.
Points will be awarded for each correct pick according to the point structure below.
Additional points will be awarded for correct upset picks.
Each correct pick in the 1st Round: 1 point (The play-in games on March 14 & 15 are NOT counted)
Each correct pick in the 2nd Round: 2 points
Each correct pick in the 3rd Round: 4 points
Each correct pick in the 4th Round: 8 points
Each correct pick in the Final Four: 16 points
Correct Pick in the Championship Game: 32 points
The seed of the winning team is added to your point total. Since anyone can pick the higher ranking teams and do relatively well, a twist has been added to reward those that pick upset winners.
#16 seed wins in Round 1. If you choose #16 seed, you receive 17 points for that correct pick.
(16 (seed) + 1 (correct pick in Round 1) = 17 points)
#10 seed wins in Round 4 vs #5 seed. If you choose #10 seed, you receive 18 points for that correct pick.
(10 (seed) + 8 (correct pick in Round 4) = 18 points)
You must get the pick correct in order to get the bonus points
The winner is the entry that accumulates the most points according to their correct picks, and additional points. (It is not the most correct picks but the most points accumulated)
To increase your chances of winning, you may play as many times as you wish. Each entry will be scored separately.

Once you have completed the signup, you will be taken to the payment page with instructions on how to pay your entry fee. Payments must be in the commish's possession by the end of the day, Saturday March 18th with no exceptions.
NOTE: Payments not received by March 18 will have your entry removed from the league for non payment, regardless where your team is in the standings. This will be strictly enforced, even if you are in first place. Please make sure you get your payment in early to avoid this.
Selections for the entire tournament are due prior to tip off of the first game on Thursday, March 16 (which is typically around noontime EST). Once the deadline has passed for that game, your picks are locked in for the tournament.
