Enter Chicagoist's NCAA Tournament Challenge

By Benjy Lipsman in News on Mar 18, 2013 4:20PM

2013_tournament_challenge_bracket.jpg March Madness is here! Conference tournaments wrapped up yesterday, and the field of 68 for the Big Dance has been set. That means it's time for Chicagoist's annual Tournament Challenge. Compete against your fellow Chicagoist readers and staffers in our NCAA Tournament pool. It's free to play, and there's still a prize for the winning reader—plus bragging rights that are way more impressive than just winning your office pool.

It's never easy to win, with over 100 entries annually. We were just thankful to crack the top five in this pool last year, while our winner, DJSTEVEOH, finished with 1520 points and placed above 99.3 percent of all ESPN's entries. And with a top heavy Big Ten this year, we expect many of you will have insights on those teams that'll help improve your selection ability deep into the bracket.

To join our pool, go to ESPN's Tournament Challenge page, find the Chicagoist group and fill out your bracket. One entry per person, please.

Good luck! And don't forget to complete your bracket before Thursday's games start. ESPN's giving you the wins in the "first round" play-in games.
