The Game - Pick nine teams in the tournament
 
The Goal - Accumulate the most actual points scored by your teams during the entire tournament
 
The Catch - Your nine teams have to meet the following criteria: One #1 seed, two teams seeded #2, #3 or #4, two teams seeded #5, #6, #7 or #8, two teams seeded #9, #10, #11 or #12 and two teams seeded #13, #14, #15 or #16
 
The contest is for the entire tournament. Thus, if you are selecting any teams playing in the Opening Round, your entry - posted to this thread - is due by the time their game starts. Otherwise, all entries are due by the tip of the first game on Thursday morning. If you put in an entry then make any changes, you need to check the "Edit" box when modifying your post.

Wasn't going to but you guys talked me into it.

 

Sorry we missed last night's games - they won't count in this contest.  But tonight's games are on the table.

It's just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long, the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter, while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. But then winter came and the grasshopper died. And the octopus ate all his acorns. Also he got a race car. Is any of this getting through to you?

Not sure I've ever seen every entry have the exact same number of games played like this.  Interesting.

 

It'sNotAFakeID is sitting in the cat bird's seat.  Most points and has the most teams left.

 

But there's a lot of basketball yet to be played.  NUance and spurs1990 the only other entries with 7 teams left.

Hey Mav,  Would you mind deleting rows 16-19 in your spreadsheet to make it easier for us to see the non-frozen rows as we're scrolling down?  Thanks!  :lol:

And now I'm in first!  Woo hoo!!  

 

I had to post that rather quickly since three of my teams lost today and I only have two teams left.  So until a couple of games end, and the scores get posted, I'm temporarily in first for a few minutes!  LOL.  And as soon as the next round starts I'll plummet like a rock with only two teams left.   :lol:

It'sNotAFakeID putting a strangle-hold on the contest.  In first place by nearly 40 points with two extra teams on second-place NUance and over 100 points clear and one extra team of third.  Unless Kansas, Arizona, UCLA and Wisconsin make quick exits, this might be over.

Ha!  At least there's a little drama left in the contest.

 

It'sNotAFakeID still with a decent lead but is now out of teams.  

RedRedJarvisRedwine is 226 points back with only North Carolina remaining.  UNC has three possible games left which means they'd have to play for the Championship and average 76 points per game along the way to catch FakeID. 

commando has Gonzaga and Kentucky left and is 241 points behind.  Would need at least three games averaging 81 ppg to catch FakeID.

I don't think anyone else has a chance to win as no one else has more than one team left and the closest ones have UNC so they can't pass RRJR.  Technically ithinkiloverg44 could but Kentucky would have to average 97 doing it which doesn't seem likely.

RRJR needs UNC to win their next game and average 76 ppg to beat Fake ID.

command needs Gonzaga to win their next game and average 84 ppg to tie FakeID.

commando needs Gonzaga to out-score RRJR by 18 points to pass RRJR.
