How to Enter

1. The most convenient method of entry for those with internet access would be the web entry form which can be accessed here. Otherwise, get thee a copy of the NCAA Men’s Tournament Bracket. The most convenient place to get one would be the sports section of your local newspaper. You can also get the brackets at various sports related web sites (ESPN, NCAA, CBS Sports, etc.). If you are planning to enter online via this web site, skip to step 6 below.

2. Fill out the brackets completely using all the college basketball wisdom you can conjure up.

3. Make a prediction for the total combined score for the championship game. For instance, if you think the final score will be 82-76, your prediction would be 158.

4. Create a nickname for yourself. This is important, because if you don’t give us one, we’ll make one up for you. Historically, these assigned nicknames have not been flattering.

5.Send all that precious information this-away before the first game on Thursday, March 21. Obviously, the fastest way to get the info here is via the web entry form or by e-mail (ncaa(at) If sending your picks by e-mail, the most efficient way of completing this tedious task is to format your picks as follows:

– Nickname:
– Final game total score:
– NCAA Champion:
– Runner-up:
– Final Four losers (round 5):
– Round 4 losers (4 teams):
– Round 3 losers (8 teams):
– Round 2 losers (16 teams):

6. And finally, you must arrange to have your entry fee of $10 sent to us. There are two or three basic methods for payment:

– Personally hand the $10 fee to an HWCI member by March 22
– By check sent by snail mail (mailed and postmarked by March 21, the first day of the tournament). Please e-mail us at ncaa(at) to get the address to which mail the checks.

– E-mail ncaa(at) for other online payment options.

Important exception: If you have an HWCI member who can vouch for you and front your money, this is not a hard deadline.

Remember, if you have any questions, address them to ncaa(at)
