Daily Picks: 03/04... The Fine Nine

Since I’m feeling generous, I’m going to award TWO more automatic bids because the other top 5 players from the regular season deserve them:

hoosierguy1019 finished in third place with bonus points and fourth place without them.
Lobofan2003 is one of only 4 players with a pick percentage above .700.  That was good enough for third place without bonus points and fifth place with them.

Tongneri7 , in his first year of the competition, finished in fourth place overall with a .683 pick percentage… which was good enough for our final AUTOMATIC bid and the #6 overall seed.  Unfortunately, he stopped making picks!

So, here’s where it gets interesting… The rest of us are wrapping up the BIT Play-In Round tonight for the right to join our Top 5 in the quest for the National Championship.  Since one of our auto-bids dropped out, the Top 4 players in the BIT Play-In Round (not counting those who received autobids) will ultimately join the Top 5 in 3 different Regions while all other players will continue to compete in the B.I.T.  Here’s how the tournament will differ from previous years…

During the BIT play-in round, ALL players (including automatic qualifiers) started with zero points.

The top 3 overall players (GeoMapster, BoilerBadger, & s0merand0mdude) are simply competing against each other for the Top 3 seeds.
The next 2 players (hoosierguy1019 & Lobofan2003) are competing for seeds 4&5.
All other players are competing for seeds 6-9.  The players who do not finish in the Top 9 will continue to play in the B.I.T. for the rest of the season.

The National Championship Bracket will consist of exactly 9 players (The Fine 9 instead of The Elite 8) in 3 regions.  They will be formed as follows:

Region A : #1, #6, #9
Region B : #2, #5, #8
Region C : #3, #4, #7

Based on the results of the "Fine 9" round, the top player in each region will advance to the Final 4.  In addition, the player with the most points from the remaining 6 will earn a trip to the Final 4 as a wild card.  All other players will move into the B.I.T. bracket.

In the Final 4, the player with the most cumulative points (starting with the BIT Play-In Round) will compete head-to-head with the player with the least cumulative points.  The other two players will also face each other.

The winners of the head-to-head matchups will face each other for the National Championship while the other will move into the B.I.T.

Our schedule is here:

BIT Play-In Round : Games from 02/28 (Mon) – 03/03 (Thu)
Fine 9 : Games from 03/04 (Fri) – 03/06 (Sun)
Final 4 : Games from 03/07 (Mon) – 03/10 (Thu)
Finals : Games from 03/11 (Fri) – 03/13 (Sun)

Good luck everyone!!!  Here is our first set of FINE 9 Games...

2-The Citadel over Elon
3-Creighton over Northern Iowa
4-Detroit over Valparaiso
5-Evansville over Indiana State
