Point System

The Perfect Bracket Prize is given to the player who correctly selects the winner of every game of the College Basketball Tournament, including the championship game.

Other prizes are granted based on point totals earned according to the following chart:

• 1st Round = 1 pts

• 2nd Round = 2 pts

• 3rd Round = 4 pts

• 4th Round = 8 pts

• 5th Round = 12 pts

• 6th Round = 16 pts

The system is set up so that you can still come back with a good showing in the later rounds if you do poorly at the beginning. Players will be able to check their point totals by logging into their accounts, as well as checking their standings in the contest. Point totals will be updated after every round has officially ended. Points are non-transferable.
