Standings Updated After Round One

Greetings everyone! Thank you to everyone who submitted pick sheets this year. We ended up with 366 pick sheets in the 2022 bracket contest. The first round has ended, the standings are updated and I hope you caught the Baylor vs North Carolina game. Baylor was down by 25, came back to tie it up, but fell short in the overtime session. So, that means we have lost our first #1 seeded team of the tournament.

If you are new to this office pool, the standings update once per hour, on the hour, after games have completed.

If you have any questions, you can always email be at anytime. Enjoy this great weekend of basketball and good luck to everyone!

If you want to figure your bracket on paper first, like I always do, I have a printable bracket available in PDF format using Adobe Reader, plus a graphic version as well. The PDF version prints out bigger, I recommend to grab that one first.
