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
Mike came into Monday with 35 points while Andy had 10. 5 Conferences were at play on Monday but a lot of similar picks by Mike an Andy, meant not a difference in margin after the tournaments finished. Here is how things looked with the Monday tourneys. Both Mike and Andy had Davidson winning the Southern and Western Carolina as sleeper. Both got 15 points from that tournament as WCU won one game while Davidson cut down the nets. In the Colonial neither picked the Champion and both had George Mason as sleeper. They picked up 5 points in that tournament as GMU won one game. In the Sun Belt, Both had Middle Tennessee State who fell short and both had Florida International as sleeper who won two games, giving each 10 points from that tournament. In the WCC, both Andy and Mike picked Gonzaga, but neither of their sleeper picks won games, so each received 10 points from the WCC. Finally, Neither picked the Champion in the MAAC, but each had Iona as their sleeper, who made the run in the tournament, earning each one 25 points. After the dust settled on Monday, here are the updated standings.
Mike 100 points
Andy 75 points
