JI March Madness Bracket 2014

By March 16, 2014

It’s that time of the year, when the snow begins to melt (hopefully) and a hoops fan’s heart turns to March Madness. This year, we at Juvenile Instructor are hosting a March Madness bracket challenge for our loyal followers. Join us!

The rules are pretty straight forward. Correct picks earlier in the tournament earn fewer points than those that are chosen correctly in later rounds. Here are the official rules, per ESPN.com (the bracket is being run through the ESPN Tournament Challenge):

A correct pick in a given round is shown below:

Scoring: In the event a Tournament match does not occur as scheduled (e.g., due to cancellation) no points will be awarded.

  • Round 2: 10 points per pick
  • Round 3: 20 points per pick
  • Round 4: 40 points per pick
  • Round 5: 80 points per pick
  • Round 6: 160 points per pick
  • Championship: 320 points per pick

 

Lock-time. All picks will lock at the scheduled tip off time of the Tournament currently scheduled for Thursday, March 20, 2014. Your picks for the matchups must be submitted, received and recorded by Sponsor’s computer by the scheduled locktime. Selections submitted after the deadline are considered invalid. Sponsor’s computer is the official time-keeping device for this Promotion.

Ties. Entrants may, but are not required to, submit a predicted score for the championship game (the “Tiebreaker Game Score”). This prediction is used for tiebreaker purposes only. If no predicted score is submitted for an entry, it is given a default prediction of zero (0) points to zero (0) points.

Good luck to everyone!
