  • I am kind of mostly recovered from a cold and ready to start doing stuff again, so here we go!

  • Howie72 picks up another win this week and extends the lead out to 5 points with only 2 weeks left in the season before March Madness hits. yoyoandcigs was the only other tipper to cash in on a near perfect bonus and in the process moves into third as N-Bomb tried for multiple solo bonuses and only hit on one. Meanwhile, dg_dave got 10 this week and is now down to single digits as he attempts(?) to overtake Sypher.

  • The only solo bonuses this week were taken by N-Bomb and wwe84, as they both took Pittsburgh in their upset over #17 Florida State 80-66. Going over all the attempts at solo bonuses would take far too long, but wwe84 missed on 7, ozzz2002 missed on 5, N-Bomb missed on 3, and ElfTwinkle and dg_dave both missed 1.

  • #4 Baylor was the top team to fall this week, but it wasnt an upset as they fell to #3 Kansas. #14 Virginia was the next-highest to fall, but it wasnt an upset either as they lost to #10 North Carolina. Florida State was the biggest upset of the weekend. #21 South Carolina was the only other team bitten by the upset bug, falling to Vanderbilt 71-62.

  • N-Bomb picks up the win this week, and in the process moves within 4 points of second place. Howie72 has first all but locked up being up 6 points, while ElfTwinkle and N-Bomb battle for second. yoyoandcigs still has a chance for third as well.

  • No bonus points were handed out this week at all. Everybody notched a point when Virginia beat NC State. Nobody hit when Iowa beat Maryland, or when BYU upset #1 Gonzaga.

  • The big news of the weekend was #1 Gonzaga falling to the hands of BYU at home, ending their undefeated season 79-71. #4 Arizona also lost at home, to #5 UCLA 77-72. #9 Baylor lost for the 3rd time in 4 games, this time to Iowa State on the road 72-69. #10 Duke also fell on the road to Miami 55-50. #13 Florida lost on the road to #11 Kentucky; #14 Purdue lost on the road to Michigan; and Iowa beat #24 Maryland. Sunday brought another batch of upsets, with Central Florida beating #15 Cincinnati 53-49, and Michigan State taking down #16 Wisconsin 84-74.

  • Apologies for the delay in getting the final results up as Im trying to move and start a new job.

  • And despite a furious comeback from ElfTwinkle, Howie72 takes home the gold on the tiebreaker as he has a +5 differential between HoFs and spoons while ElfTwinkle only has a 3. Howie72 was up by 6 at the end of the last round, but ElfTwinkle beat him by 3 this week and racked up 3 bonus points. Still, it wasnt enough and Howie72 takes his third consecutive crown, after finishing second the year before that and third the year before that. Congrats to both!

  • ElfTwinkle and Howie72 were almost locks for the top 2 spots nearly all season long, and from the rest of the field comes N-Bomb to take the bronze. For the last 3 years he has finished 1 spot behind Howie72 and now has someone between them, but it is still his 4th consecutive podium in this comp.
