The OSGA NCAA Tournament Challenge continues this weekend with Sweet 16 and Final 8 action.Though the field is starting to narrow, over 40 players still have a reasonable shot at the grand prize and most still have a chance to get into the top 10.
The 14th Annual OSGA NCAA Tournament Challenge continues this weekend with Sweet 16 and Final 8 action. Right now ‘teresad’ leads the field with 52 points. Right behind her are ‘titusott’ with 51 points and ‘kevint’ and ‘stacyca’, who are tied for third place with 50 points. All of them but ‘kevint’ have Kentucky winning it all.
In fact 88 players picked the Wildcats as their tourney champion and rightfully so, as they close in on a historic 40-0 season. Last weekend Villanova crashed and burned with a poor shooting performance against N.C. State. This loss all but crushed the chances of 10 players who had ‘Nova picked to win it all (including 3rd place holder ‘kevint’) . Still, 22 players have Wisconsin and 20 players have Arizona, both teams that have at least a chance of beating Kentucky.
In the opening round three teams were the catalyst for busting many brackets. Of course, the #1 seeded Villanova Wildcats crushed those 10 brackets, but many players had the Baylor Bears and Virginia Cavaliers going deep in their brackets. Early chatter surrounding Iowa State caused many other players to push the #3 seed forward in their brackets and now suffer the pain of choosing an over-hyped Cyclones squad to go deep. Michigan State has helped out many players and 2 players have the Spartans to win it all. Surprisingly, only 7 players picked #1 seed Duke to win the Big Dance. No one picked UCLA!
