It's easy… if your selection wins the game, you earn challenge points! We total your points at the end of all tournament games and the entry with the most challenge points is the winner.
Participants earn challenge points for correctly picking winning teams in each round of the bracket (NOT including the "First Four" play-in games) as follows:
- 1st Round: 1 point for each correct selection
- 2nd Round: 2 points for each correct selection
- 3rd Round: 4 points for each correct selection
- 4th Round: 6 points for each correct selection
- 5th Round: 8 points for each correct selection
- 6th Round: 10 points for each correct selection
Example: Duke beats Florida State in round 2. You picked Duke, you get 2 challenge points. Dayton beats Maryland in round 5. You picked Dayton, you receive 8 challenge points for that game.
Special Bonus Report: At the end of the game, H2H will post in Game News a report with the top 100 participants and their number of correct selections.
Keep in mind that your team selections are final once the contest trade and registration deadline has passed. This is a pick once bracket game so your selections are permanent throughout the entire contest.
Registrations or selection changes can be made up until Thursday, March 19th at Noon ET (9 am PT).
