2017 March Madness Pool - Rules

WHAT TO DO:

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 the seed number of the winning teams you choose

 

POINTS DISTRIBUTION:

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 

For purposes of this pool, the First Round is considered to be the Round of 64. Play in games do not count in this pool.
 

SEED BONUS 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. 

Example:

#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

 

WINNERS/TIEBREAKERS:

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)

If there is a tie, the player who selects the total score of the championship game closest (high or low) will be the winner. If there is still a tie, payout will be split by the number of entries tied
 

MULTIPLE ENTRIES:

To increase your chances of winning, you may play as many times as you wish. Each entry will be scored separately.

If you would like to play a 2nd or 3rd entry, you may choose them at signup. If you have already signed up and wish to add additional entries, please contact the league commish at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

We will be using PickHoops.com to run the league this year. For your convenience, Prime Fantasy Sports will only require you to signup once. Once you signup here, we will add you to the pool. You simply need to remember the login credentials you provided at signup and login when your entry/entries have been added. Once added, you can login anytime using the "Login" link at the top right of any page at Prime Fantasy Sports. Just choose the "March Madness" login option. 

Once you have completed the signup, you will be taken to the payment page with instructions on how to pay your entry fee. Payments are due within 7 days of the start of the pool with no exceptions (March 22nd). 

NOTE: Payments not received within this 7 day window 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. 


SUBMISSION DEADLINES:

Selections for the entire tournament are due prior to tip off of the first game on Thursday, March 16 (which is typically around noontime ET). Once the deadline has passed for that game, your picks are locked in for the tournament.
