Welcome to the 21st March Madness Pool!!

Standings are updated after Saturday's Final Four games. With Virginia in the finals, Chris Mackinder jumped into first place heading in the championship game. Since no one picked Texas Tech to win the title, the current standings will remain as the final standings if the Red Raiders win the title. If Virginia wins, there are a few brackets with Virginia that can position themselves in the Top 5 of the pool.

Below are this year's top-5 scenarios:

Everyone's bracket is now viewable on the Picks page.
Payouts will be 600-200-100-50-30 to the Top 5.

Thank you to everyone that joined this year's pool, and best of luck to all of those still vying for a spot in the Top 5!!
