Beat the Pros Challenge: 1st Round Results

Staff Writer

It didn't take long for the brackets to fall this March. Thanks to the first evern 16-seed over a #1, there are a lot of brackets completely busted. The most points that participants could have gotten with a perfect bracket was 32 points. How did you stack up against the DDD pros? The next round (Saturday and Sunday's round of 32) will be worth two points apiece. Below is a listing of where everyone stands currently, while there are some numbers on the contest as a whole as well.
