    Should be an interesting tournament this year!

    UCONN is the clear favorite but it's partiy everywhere else.

    The top 3 still have a chance to win the top spot with various possibilities for a few others to make it into the top 5, depending on who wins tonight.

    If UConn wins we'll have a tie and I don't believe we ever addressed a tie-breaker, even though we all picked a final score. So my thinking is Steve and Joshua will split the 1st and second place prizes.

    If Purdue wins, greg r will get 1st place.

    We didn't really have any specific tie-breaker rules set out, so I will split the prizes for the ties.
