Now that the dust has settled we can officially announce our bracket winners for each challenge as well as our overall points winner.
There was no “Ultimate Champion” to win both brackets but yet again the Men’s bracket came down to the championship game. It was a season of upsets that sent that tourney challenge into a tailspin from the opening weekend.
The winner of the Men’s Tournament Challenge belongs to our bracket MizzouTgr11 4. The winner of this bracket challenge wasn’t decided until Villanova pulled away from upset-minded Michigan. In the end Villanova got to cut down the net with a dominant performance and MizzouTgr11 4 took the Men’s Bracket with a moderate 1050 points.
In the Women’s Challenge the champion was decided before the final tip-off between Notre Dame and Mississippi State even took place. Only two of the eighteen brackets had Notre Dame winning it all while a single bracket had Miss State claiming the title. It was a close race but the winning bracket of CEREBRAL ASSASSIN 3 … 5 who earned 1670 of the possible 1920pts. In a not-so-close second was Robertw56 high seeds who amassed 1190 points.
Now it’s time to reveal the overall Points Champion. This race was also close and ultimately came down to the winner of the Men’s 2nd Chance Bracket to decide the champion since the picks in the Women’s bracket were virtually unanimous.
Scoring a total 8640 points the top contestant was Free Sports Press, our own entry, as we took full advantage of submitting five (5) brackets for each competition as well as the 2nd Chance Bracket.
In a close second was zcr00 who totaled 8120 points.
The winner’s of each bracket will get the locker room tee of the winning school in their bracket. The overall Points Champion (us) will forgo the prizes as it makes no point to pay ourself but we will gladly hoist the title of “Overall Points Champion”.
Absent from this year’s competition was “AllenFa13”, always a worthy opponent. Will “AllenFa13” reclaim his title next year? Will we earn back-to-back titles? Or will a fresh face come into the frey to claim the title? Only time will tell.
Here are the final Point Standings for all entries:
|Contestant Name||Total Points||Standings|
|Free Sports Press||8640||1|
|CEREBRAL ASSASSIN 3||1670||4|
We’ll be in contact with our contest winners to discuss prize options. Thank you again for all who participated. Be on the look out for our next contest/giveaway coming up this summer!
