  2. Optional Service Package. You may enter H2H College Baseketball for $24.95 for a Complete Package, $14.95 for a Starter Package, or for free with a Basic Package. All payments must be in U.S. funds.

Do not send cash. Make check or money order payable to "Head2Head Sports". Visa, Amex, MasterCard, and Discover credit cards are accepted as well as PayPal.
  3. Eligibility. H2H College Basketball is open only to residents of the United States of America, Puerto Rico, and Canada (excluding Quebec). THIS CONTEST IS SUBJECT TO ALL FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL LAWS. You must be 18 years or older as of November 30, 2015 to participate. THIS CONTEST IS VOID WHERE OTHERWISE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW. All employees and immediate family members of Head2Head Sports, their sponsors, advertising, production, and fulfillment agencies are not eligible for prizes. H2H reserves the right to disqualify any entry form that is incomplete or incorrect. Limit four entries per household. If more than four entries from the same household, then only the first four entries, as determined by Head2Head Sports (H2H), will be eligible for prizes.
  4. Final Entry Deadline. All entries must be received by 6pm ET/3pm PT on Monday, November 30, 2015 in order to be eligible to play. Entries must be mailed to H2H College Fantasy Basketball, c/o Head2Head Sports, 8145 E. Evans Road, Suite #3, Scottsdale, AZ 85260; or logged via this website. Head2Head Sports (H2H) takes no responsibility for misdirected entries, entries that are lost or damaged in the mail, or entries lost, damaged, or illegible because of poor fax transmission. H2H reserves the right to disqualify any entry form that has been incorrectly completed or is not completely legible. Only H2H College Basketball entry forms or photocopies are allowed. All entries, along with all copyright, trademark and other proprietary rights associated therewith, become the property of H2H upon submission, and will not be returned to any entrant. Mailed entries without sufficient postage are void.
  5. Rosters. You have been granted an imaginary bank account of $100 Million to buy a roster consisting of ten college basketball players, regardless of position. During the H2H Regular Season, no roster may ever exceed the $100 Million salary cap. You must always have 10 players on your roster. Teams submitted with incorrect or incomplete rosters will have a temporary roster assigned to them.
  6. Leagues. Each entry will be placed into one of six 5-team conferences within a 30-team league. You may form your own league or play with friends by sending up to 30 entries in the same envelope for mailed entries, or by joining a private Buddy League group up to 30 teams for internet entries. If less than 30 entries are submitted, the league will be filled with other entries. Entries that are not received in the same envelope or are not entered in the same private group or buddy league on the Internet, may request placement in the same league, but are not guaranteed to be placed in the same league. League winners for the H2H Regular season and the H2H Playoffs will be determined by cumulative points. Buddy leagues/pool registration deadlines are two days prior to the game registration deadline. All league winners will be determined by cumulative points.
  7. H2H Point scoring system. H2H College Basketball will include stats of players on teams from the following conferences: AAC, ACC, Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12, SEC and individual teams who are ranked in the AP Top 25 at any point in the H2H regular season. Each team will be ranked within its Conference by wins, and within its league and overall by total points. Your team's total H2H points will be calculated by applying the official H2H scoring system: Each player receives 1 H2H point for every point, rebound, assist, steal, and blocked shot. Each player loses 1 H2H point for each turnover. In addition, each player will receive 5 H2H points for each game that he plays in AND his team wins. Scoring is based only on the games actually played each week with a maximum of two games per week. If, for any reason, a player's game is postponed (due to weather, etc.) you will only receive points for that game if you have the player on your roster during the period that the game is officially completed. All H2H College Basketball period scoring is official and final with the start of the new H2H College Basketball period.
  8. Head2Head (H2H) Period. A H2H Period begins every Monday and runs through the immediately following Sunday. The first of fourteen (14) H2H Periods begins with the first college Basketball game played on Monday, November 30, 2015. The final H2H Period and H2H Regular Season end with the last game played on Sunday, March 6, 2016. Each Period you will be matched against a different team in your league. If your team's H2H point total for that period is greater than your opponent's, then your team posts a win for that H2H Period. Your team posts a loss if your opponent records more H2H points. All dates are subject to change. Statistics for games that are postponed will be counted in the weeks when the games are actually played.
  9. H2H Playoffs. After the final H2H Period, the two teams from each five-team conference from each league with the best win/loss records will automatically qualify for the H2H playoffs. In addition, four teams from each league that did not automatically qualify for the H2H Playoffs will earn "wildcard" playoff berths. These wildcard teams will be the four teams with the greatest cumulative H2H regular season point totals of all non-automatic playoff qualifiers in their respective leagues. In the event of a tie for the final wildcard position, all teams will qualify for the playoffs as a wildcard. All team win/loss records are erased and all playoff qualifiers start with zero points. All playoff qualifiers will be notified by email or via the website with H2H Playoff salaries, trade deadlines and playoff rules. The H2H Playoffs begin with the 2nd Round (not the play-in games), of the NCAA Tournament on March 17, 2016. There will be three (3) trading periods for the playoffs. The first round of the playoffs will include the second and third round games March 17th – 20th, 2016. The second round of scoring for the playoffs will be the Regional Semifinals and Finals games March 24th – 27th, 2016. The final round of the playoffs will be the National Semifinals and the National Championship game, April 2nd and 4th, 2016. Cumulative points throughout the H2H Playoffs determine the H2H Playoff winners.
  10. Player Salaries. Player salaries will be determined by Head2Head staff based on past performance and projected performance. If you want to add a player who is not listed in our game, please call the toll-free phone number during regular business hours or email your requested players to customerservice@head2head.com.
  11. Trades. Any or all of your 10 players may be traded each week. A trade consists of dropping one player and picking up another player. Plan your trades carefully. Your modified regular season roster will be accepted only if the total team salary after all trades being made at that time does NOT exceed the $100 Million cap. To ensure you have the correct roster in place, confirm your new roster when you have completed trading. If you exit the website or phone call with a Sports Agent without confirming your roster with a confirmation number, your last confirmed roster will be the roster that is scored. The website will not allow you to confirm a roster that exceeds the salary cap. If for any reason H2H experiences technical difficulty with the website, changes to the rosters will not be taken until the website is re-opened. Waiting until the deadline to trade could result in rejection of your trades. Trades must be made via phone, Internet, mail (alternative entrants only). If you do not have a credit card to trade via telephone, fax, or Internet, you may purchase groups of trades by sending a check or money order to Head2Head Sports, 8145 E. Evans Road, Suite #3, Scottsdale, AZ 85260. Trades may be purchased in a group of 10 trades for $25, 20 trades for $40 or 50 trades for $90. If you pay by check or money order, you can only make phone or internet trades after your payment has been received and entered into our game website. Trade package money is good only for the teams assigned under your Member Id#. All approved trades are final.
  12. Using Full-Team Trade Certificates. Entrants will receive one (1) Full-Team Trade Certificate (FTC) and Season Pass members will receive three (3) FTCs. You may use your FTCs for any H2H Period. With these Full-Team Trade Certificates you may trade up to all ten of your players at no cost. To make a valid trade, you must provide all the necessary information including the ID#s of the players being dropped and added. All such trades must be submitted according to the rules, restrictions and deadlines designated in the official rules. All trades will be effective for the immediately following H2H Period. Trades made for any other H2H Period will not be allowed or accepted. Your FTCs is a single transaction trading session. After you receive a confirmation number while using your Certificate, it will be deemed to be redeemed. The FTCs are designated for only the team in which they are purchased and are not transferable to other teams or member accounts.
  13. Trade Deadlines. All trades will become effective with the first college basketball game of the next H2H Period only if your trade(s) is made by the appropriate trading deadline immediately preceding that next H2H Period - note the exception below for early games. Players may be traded each week from Thursday at 5:00 pm PT until 4:00 pm PT on Mondays. Trades for the H2H Playoffs must be received by March 16, 2016 for alternative entrants, and executed by Internet by the applicable Playoff trade deadline to be announced.
  14. EARLY GAME EXCEPTION: The NCAA has scheduled games to be played prior to the final H2H Basketball trading deadline - ex: afternoon games, or games moved earlier because of weather, etc. In these situations, you have the ability to choose a player prior to the designated NCAA start/tip-off time. Any players on your roster from those teams playing at the designated start time will be locked on your roster for that H2H period. After the designated start time, you will be unable to pick up or drop players or teams from the game(s) that have started. For the remainder of the period, you will be limited to choose from teams that have not played prior to the designated final trade deadline.
  15. Voided Trades. Head2Head Sports reserves the right to void any and all trades without notice or refund. Your trades may be voided if you attempt to trade away players not on your roster, if you go over the salary cap, attempt to trade player(s) of different positions, or exclude your Member ID# or Player ID#'s. If your trades are voided, your roster will revert to the lineup of the previous H2H Period.
  16. H2H Period Tiebreaker. In the event your team's H2H point total equals that of your opponent, the team with the lower team salary total for that H2H Period will post a win for the week. If the salary totals are the same, the team with the most cumulative points wins.
  17. H2H Regular Season winner Tiebreaker. If two or more teams have the same H2H Regular Season cumulative point totals, the team with the highest score in H2H Period #14 will be determined the winner. If a tie still exists, the remaining periods starting with the most recent (i.e. Period 13, 12, 11 and so on) will be used until the tie is broken. If two teams have the same win/loss record at the end of the H2H Regular Season, the team that won the H2H match-up will finish with the higher division ranking. If more than two teams have the same win/loss record, then difference rank will be determined first by the best head2head record of all tied teams. If the head2head record can't break the tie we will then break the tie by cumulative H2H Regular Season point totals (highest to lowest is associated to final division rank). If a tie remains in either case, each tied team will share the division rank.
  18. H2H League Playoffs & Single Week High Score Tiebreakers. If two or more teams from the same 30-team league score the same number of points during the H2H Playoffs, the team with the greater cumulative H2H Regular Season point total will win the tiebreaker. If a tie still exists after applying the first tiebreaker, the prize(s) will be split evenly among the tied teams. In the event of a tie for the Single Highest Week Score (both the league and all leagues prizes), the first winning tiebreaker will be the lowest team salary cap for the highest week score period. In the event this doesn't break the tie, the next tiebreaker will be the team with the highest cumulative score for the H2H Regular Season. If a tie still exists after applying both tiebreakers, the prize(s) will be split evenly among the tied teams.
  19. H2H Playoffs Tiebreaker. If a tie exists after the H2H Playoffs, the team with the greater cumulative H2H Regular Season point total will win the tiebreaker. If a tie still exists after applying these tiebreakers, the respective prize(s) will be split evenly among all tied teams.

If you do not have a credit card, you may place money on account by sending a check or money order, payable in advance to "Head2Head Sports"; mail to Head2Head Sports, 8145 E.
