BSB Tournament Pick ‘Em: Standings and Saturday Elite Eight Preview

It’s been an odd (and awesome) tournament, and that’s made for an odd bracket competition.  Usually, heading into the Final Four there are about 3 competitors that still have a chance to win.  But, this year, before the Elite Eight gets underway, we are already down to just 3 with a chance at the title, with everyone else just playing for pride.  The 3 still alive are Jason (who continues to extend his lead), Ryan Doc, and Talia.

Standings through Sweet 16 (*-eliminated from contention):

1. Jason- 85.5

2. Ryan- 70.5

3. Talia- 68

4. Bry- 66*

5. Greg- 63*

6. Doogan- 62.5*

7. Maureen- 60.5*

8. Jared- 59.5*

9. Waters- 52*

10. Jon- 50.5*

11. Walsh- 49*

12. Ben- 46*

13. Weirauch- 43.5*

Saturday’s Elite Eight Games:

#5 Butler vs. #2 Kansas State:  Two rock solid teams will go at it here, and here’s hoping Butler can get to the Final Four in their hometown of Indianapolis.  The Hoosiers references alone would be worth it.  Talia will really be rooting for them, as both Jason and Ryan have K-State winning here (as does Greg).  Though Talia would still be alive even with a K-State win in this one.  The other 10 players (besides Jason, Ryan, Greg) have already lost this game.

#2 West Virginia vs. #1 Kentucky:  The only 1-2 Regional Final this year.  Kentucky’s been playing great and I really expect them to overpower the Mountaineers here and move on to Indy.  West Virginia will have to zone them and hope Kentucky fails to knock down shots and turns the ball over enough.  There are major implications for the bracket in this one, as Jason could put a very early end to this competition with a West Virginia win.  Bry, Waters, and Weirauch also have the Mountaineers here.  8 of the other 9 players (including Ryan and Talia) have Kentucky.

  1. You actually make it appear so easy together with your presentation but I find
    this matter to be actually one thing which I think I would by no means understand.
    It kind of feels too complex and very huge for me.
    I’m looking ahead on your subsequent put up, I will attempt
    to get the cling of it!
