The following is an updated list of the DDD Beat the Pros Challenge brackets. It's been a wild tournament to this point and Wichita State has continued the trend busting everyone's brackets. Indiana's early exit was also a breaking point for more than half of the field.
The following is the updated results after the Sweet 16 round is completed as well as a breakdown of the brackets for each score. Bellmont Braves basketball coach John Baker is leading the field with 60 points with three of his Final Four teams left but Kansas, his national champion selection, is out leaving the field open still.
With the third round complete, just 16 teams remain and many brackets have been left in shambles after a big week for upsets. Below is a breakdown of the brackets by score followed by the top 100 brackets by name.
47: 1.... 46: 5... 45: 6... 44: 11.... 43: 9... 42: 20... 41: 11... 40: 15... 39: 11... 38: 13... 37: 12... 36: 9... 35: 4... 34: 3... 33: 2... 32: 1... 31: 0... 30: 2... 29: 0... 28: 1.
After an upset-stacked second round of the NCAA tournament, the most games correctly guessed out of a possible 32 was Garrett Fuelling's 26 out of 32. Looking towards the future rounds, Garrett has all of his Final Four teams intact and seven of eight Elite Eight teams.
The lowest score was 17 but with the amount of upsets it's still anyone's contest. Below is a breakdown of the brackets by score and then a list of the top brackets as of Saturday morning.

The ACAC made its first move towards a shake-up on Thursday as the Allen County Athletic Conference extended an invitation to Jay County High School for membership into the conference.
