Didn't Ovechkin have Norfolk State in his Elite 8?

YES...



Washington Capitals' Alex Ovechkin’s NCAA tournament bracket:
1) He signed the bracket “OVI8” at the top.
2) He picked Alabama, (who already lost to Creighton), to advance to the title game, against Kentucky.
3) His elite eight includes Kentucky, Duke, St. Louis, Norfolk State, Syracuse, West Virginia, Alabama and Georgetown.
4) He decided filling out a bracket was more of a dot-to-dot style arrow-filled maze game, rather than a fill-in-the-blank quiz.

I added Alex Ovechkin's bracket to the WNFF March Madness Bracket contest.

He is currently in first place
He got 23 correct of the first 32 games.  Since we're using Add Seed, he has 259 points.  But the most he can get correct is only 44.

There is a MLB Big League Bracket Challenge, with one player from each team submitting one.

Ryan Zimmerman represents the Nationals, so I added his bracket to the WNFF March Madness contest.  He's has Kentucky as champion, and is currently in 6th place in our league.  Zim-with-1-N's Bracket:

Gonzaga failing short again. They always play the big boys tough but have a difficult time getting past them.

Interesting call on the flagrant foul on Indiana. By rule it is correct. But it was so slight it wasn't noticeable.

They should've called an obvious foul on Wisconsin on the 3 point shot that would've given Vandy a chance to tie with 2 seconds left. While being in the 2-3 zone helped Vandy limit the shot opportunities of Indiana in the final possessions it also hampered them from being in position to rebound and that was costly.

VCU is a savvy team. They are dictating pace.

Indiana looks confused with the pace.    That helped 'em.

Why do teams go for the win, ALL THE TIME?  They never take the easier shot and go for overtime.

Georgetown only lost in the mind of Seth Davis.
