PS NCAA Predictors Jam
Ramesh C. Reddy

Editors note: The Pittsburgh Standard does not adhere to gambling or betting. I present this game to you to have fun and challenge yourself to know different teams in the NCAA during the NCAA Tournament. The best way to do that is finding out about the teams and challenging yourself to predict winners based on the teams and anticipating upsets can happen. Even though I am playing the game, I will excuse myself from being the final winner. The runner up will receive the prize.


Welcome to PS NCAA Tournament Picks! You have to pick the entire bracket and the final winner. You will do that in four separate submissions: MidWest, West, East, and South!

Every round, you will be going up against another Pitt student and so after Round 1, 32 students will advance to Round 2!

In the end, only 1 will remain standing as the winner. The winner have the possibility to win $123.00. I say possibility because it depends on how much is banked each round. Each round, you can earn $20.48 cents! After all the rounds are over, every rounds amount will be added and given to the winner!

Will you be the one that gets jammed into the elimination pool or will you be the one that jams on to become the winner?

Find out each week as you pit yourself against your peers who will try to outwit your predictions.

Pit yourself against other Pitt students picking plenty of games!
