Rules & Scoring

Our scoring system gives you more points per correct pick as the rounds progress. This helps keep everyone in the hunt.
Additionally if you correctly pick a lower seeded team to win you receive bonus points.

You get points for each win you correctly predict. Points are as follows:
Round                          Point Value
First Round                        1 point
Second Round                 2 points
Regional Semi’s              4 points
Regional Finals               8 points
Final Four                      16 points
Championship Game   32 points

You will get bonus points for each lower seed win you correctly predict:
Bonus Pick              Bonus Points
9th seed win          1 bonus point
10th seed win      2 bonus points
11th seed win      3 bonus points
12th seed win      4 bonus points
13th seed win      5 bonus points
14th seed win      6 bonus points
15th seed win      7 bonus points
16th seed win      8 bonus points

Note: you will get the bonus points for each game a 9th or lower seed wins. If you feel that 12th seed dark horse will make
the Final Four, pick them to do so and you’ll get the bonus points for each win.

***TIEBREAKER – The closest to the total combined score for the championship game. (Be sure to provide your guess
as to the TOTAL COMBINED SCORE OF BOTH TEAMS for the championship game.)

We don’t do play in games! The tourney starts Thursday around noon (actually 11:30am I think). You MUST have your
picks in before then to play.

Good luck all!
