Tourney Game: Round 1

OK, round 1 is over, and thanks to Cleveland State, there was at least one undeniable genuine upset.  I think one of the reasons I haven't been able to get into the games much is because I've had to work.  Working always takes the fun out of it, I guess.  But really, I'm just sort of over the NCAA tournament.  I think the years of indifference to the NCAA regular season may have finally caught up to me.

Anyway, here are the results of the first full round of the ATVS NCAA Tournament Game:

  • Richard: 277 points, 8 players remaining (Sam Young, Blake Griffin, Demarre Carroll, Toney Douglas, James Harden, Marcus Thornton, Grievus Vasquez, AJ Slaughter)
  • Poseur: 252 points, 7 players remaining (Terrance Williams, Tyreke Evans, Scottie Reynolds, Derrick Brown, Marcus Thornton, Grievus Vasquez, AJ Slaughter)
  • Janepriceestrada: 294 points, 8 players remaining (Tyler Hansbrough, Gerald Henderson, Jonny Flynn, BJ Raymond, AJ Abrams, Tasmin Mitchell, Grievus Vasquez, AJ Slaughter)
  • Scott (email submission):  333 points, 9 players remaining (Tyler Hansbrough, Kyle Singler, Sherron Collins, Toney Douglas, James Harden, Marcus Thornton, Manny Harris, AJ Slaughter, J'Nathan Bullock)
  • Uberschuck (email submission): 254 points, 10 players remaining (Tyler Hansbrough, Tyreke Evans, Scottie REynolds, BJ Raymond, Toney Douglas, James Harden, AJ Abrams, Marcus Thornton, Grievus Vasquez, Orlando Mendez-Valdez)
  • LSU Jonno: 269 points, 8 players remaining (Terrance williams, Tyreke Evans, Jonny Flynn, Toney Douglas, James Harden, Tasmin MItchell, Grievus Vasquez, AJ Slaughter).

Scott obviously had a big round.  Picking a Cleveland State player gave him a pretty good advantage, plus he avoided any of the really bad picks other than Jeff Teague (killer).  All of his picks either put up a decent number or advanced to play another game.

Poseur's at a decided disadvantage, mainly because he had  bad #16 and #15 picks that got him few points, and he picked the three-team combination of Utah, West Virginia, and Boston College, getting three players who scored a combined total of 33 points and were all eliminated.

I'm sitting in the middle of the pack, but I have the most players that no one else has.  With Sam Young, Blake Griffin, and Demarre Carroll, I will do OK as long as Pittsburgh, Oklahoma, and Missouri advance while other team's 1, 2, and 3 players are eliminated.

Uberschuck didn't get enough points in round 1, but he has the most players remaining, thanks to avoiding upsets in round one (all of his 1-8 players advanced), and picking Maryland and WKU (which everyone picked, by the way).

Janepriceestrada is in decent position, but needs Syracuse and Xavier to advance pretty far if she wants to catch up to Scott.  She also needs Kansas or FSU to take a hard fall.

LSU Jonno is at a disadvantage because he only has 7 players remaining.  He really needs Syracuse, Memphis, and Louisville to advance far, and needs for all the lower seed teams other than Maryland to get bumped out from here.

All scoring is based on the box scores on ESPN's pages.  If anyone has any disputes or thinks I did my math wrong (it is very possible), leave a message or email me and tell me what you think your scores should be.  After the jump, I will list everyone's team so it's all out in the open.

    Because Scott's email did funny things with the names, and because I don't feel like worrying about it, I will not be modifying his list to take out the weird formatting.
