Opening Round Games ("First Four"): The first four Opening Round games played on Tuesday, March 15th and Wednesday, March 16th will be counted. Picks may still be entered for remaining First Four games after they begin on Tuesday, but of course that means a missed shot at extra points. Full bracket can be entered all the way up until the games on Thursday, March 17th. So even if you're not ready to submit an entire bracket, make sure to enter your 4 Opening Round picks before Tuesday's games to make sure you can have a shot at points in the Opening Round games.
