POOL FORMAT
This is a Survivor pool where you pick 1 team for each day of the NCAA Men’s Division 1 Basketball Tournament (not including the play-in-games). If the teams you pick win, you advance. If a team you pick loses, you are eliminated. The person who advances the furthest wins the pool.  Once you pick a team you may not pick that team again.

POINT SPREADS
This pool does not use point spreads. Wins are determined on a straight-up basis.

DAILY PICKS
You will make 1 pick per day of the tournament–not 1 pick each round, 1 pick each DAY! In total, to make it to the end you will need to pick 10 winners.

DAYS 7 & 8 – SPECIAL RULE
In days 7 & 8, when there are 2 games on Saturday and 2 games on Sunday, you may pick any 2 teams from either day. You may pick 1 team from each day, 2 teams from Saturday, or 2 teams from Sunday. Of course, you cannot select the same team twice.

DURATION
The contest begins Thursday, March 16, but you may enter immediately!  It will continue until the championship game if necessary.

TIEBREAKERS
If 2 or more people are surviving with the same number of wins after everyone is eliminated, the pool manager will ‘revive’ all the people who are tied for the lead (with the same number of wins) and let them keep picking until there is only 1 winner. If the tournament ends before a winner can be determined, then it will be considered a tie.  When a player makes a winning pick (technically advancing to the next day) but doesn’t have any teams left to pick, that player is still in the running and will only be knocked out when someone else in the pool makes another winning pick. It is the eventual number of winning picks that determines who wins the pool.

PICK DEADLINE
The pick deadline is currently set for N/A and this will be your daily deadline unless the pool manager changes it. The pick deadline may be later than the first game time of each round. You can never enter or change a pick for a game that has already started and you can not enter or change picks after the pick deadline.

DEFAULT PICK
There are NO default selections. If you fail to make a selection, you are eliminated.

MANAGER PICKS
The pool manager can enter picks for anyone at any time, even after the tournament has started. When this happens, the website flags the late picks in the standings pages so that everyone knows that a late change has been made.

CONFIRMING PICKS
It is your responsibility to confirm that your own picks are accepted by the website. You can do this in a number of ways including the pick confirmation email and by returning to the pick sheet to see that your selections are prefilled. The picks shown on the website after the deadline has passed are your FINAL picks regardless of any paper printouts or confirmation emails or other proof you might have. In the event of any dispute with individual picks, we will always go by what is shown on the website.

ENTRY FEE
The entry fee is $50 per entry.  You may enter as many times as you wish.  Once you sign up, a Pay Pal invoice will be sent to your email address.  You may pay by Pay Pal, with a credit card by phone, or by check or money order payable to BoxScore Baseball.

PRIZES
March Madness Survival Pool is a one-winner take-all competition. 90% of the net entry fee money received is returned as prize money.  In the event of a tie, the Grand Prize will be divided equally between all final survivors.
