For the second straight year a 15-seed Cinderella has danced into the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament. When Princeton took down the Missouri Tigers on Saturday, it also eliminated 22 entries from our pool. That was the big cannon ball into our pool, as no other contest eliminated more than three participants, as the next biggest surprise was the Self-less 1-seed Kansas Jayhawks falling to Arkansas.

Sunday featured very little drama for our pool as the majority of remaining entrants correctly selected Florida Atlantic to end the unthinkable run of 16-seed Fairleigh Dickinson.

After all the activity of the first two rounds, we have 28 participants alive, just 18% of the total entry pool. Congrats to those of you that have made it this far and good luck throughout the rest of the Tournament.
