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.
With just the Final Four and National Championship left to play, 78 of the 138 total brackets are complete. This means that with these brackets there is no more potential for points and their total is set. Below is a list of the top 56 brackets. Although some of the brackets still have teams left to score, included in the list are those brackets who are out of points possible signified with an asterisk (*).
Remember, five points are awarded for each of the two Final Four games with a whopping 10 points for the correct champion.
