Insiders Predictions Update
For those of you following along, Andy Coppens and Mike Holder made Championship Week predictions for all the tournaments, in Championship Week Central. Since Andy lives in Wisconsin and Mike lives in North Carolina, there is some Barbeque, Brats and Cheese on the line.
The scoring system for the predictions are as follows:
If Champion is picked = 10 points
For each win by a Sleeper picked = 5 points
If Sleeper wins Championship = 10 points plus 5 for each game won
There were three Championship Games on Tuesday. Mike came into the night with a 100-75 lead. In the Northeast Conference neither Andy or Mike picked the Champion (Mike had Robert Morris and Andy had Bryant) but Mike's sleeper won the tournament, LIU-Brooklyn. So Mike picked up 25 points. Meanwhile, Andy's sleeper, Mt. Saint Mary's won 2 games so he picked up 10 points.
In the Horizon, Andy and Mike had identical Champions and Sleeper. Neither picked the Champion but their sleeper, Green Bay, won two rounds so each got 10 points in this conference.
In the Summit League Tournament like the Horizon, Andy and Mike each had the same Champion and Sleeper. Both picked South Dakota State who won the tournament so each got 10 points, but their sleeper Oakland, did not fair so well, eliminated in the first round giving them 0 points.
After all was said and done on Tuesday, here are the updated standings:
Mike 145 points
Andy 105 points
