Pick the Hoops Contest


Contest Rules: Pick the winner of each of the games in the Pick The Hoops Contest. The entry with the most winners wins the contest. In the event that two or more entries tie with the highest number of winners, the tie breaker will be used to determine the winner, first predicting the right team in the selected game to win, and then the fewest number of points away from the actual score of the game. One entry per physical or email address. Decisions of the judges are final. Entries are limited to zip codes that begin with 275, 278, 283, and 285 and area codes 919, 910 and 252.

For this week's contest, predict the four teams who will advance to Friday's semi-finals, the two teams who will advance to the finals, the ACC Tournament Champion, and the score of the final game.

Contest entry deadline this week is Wednesday at 5 p.m.

Enter by 5 p.m. on March 9 (early deadline this week) for a chance to win tickets to the Monmouth at ECU series on March 19-21.

I can never enter the pick the hoops contest on the website because it always a week behind when I pull it up. Am I doing something wrong?

Editor's note: The contest is typically made available online sometime on Thursday or Friday. There is an email notification list to inform regular players when the new contest is posted. I've added you to that list so that you will be emailed when it is available. ~JC
