March Madness Pool - Final 4 Update

What a weekend!  More great games and exciting finishes.  It's been a brutal year on everybody's brackets however.  Heading into the Final 4, 11 out of our 20 participants can get no more points.  That's got to be some kind of record.  Also we had 8(!) participants not get a single Final 4 team correct.  The best anybody did was get two correct Final 4 teams, with several people accomplishing that feat.  Of particular note is the fact that everybody who picked two teams correctly picked West Virginia and Duke, except for my sister Jessica.  Somehow she managed to get the exact opposite, correctly picking Butler and Michigan St. in the Final 4, so hats off to her for those picks.  Here are the standings heading into the final weekend of play.  People with stars next to their score mean that they can earn no more points.  The numbers in parentheses are the most possible points that a person can finish with.

1. Katie S. - 75 (91)
2. Chris S. - 71 (87)
3. Alex H. - 70 (86)
4. Bob S. - 68 (84)
4. Paula D. - 68*
6. Jennie T. - 64 (80)
7. Jessica S. - 58 (106)
8. Erika S. - 57 (105)
9. Patty S. - 56*
10. John & Dorothy H. - 55 (103)
11. Eric H. - 55*
12. Lauren H. - 52*
13. Stina C. - 51*
14. Paul D. - 50*
14. Ashleigh S. - 50*
14. Rob S. - 50*
17. Cassidy J. - 49*
18. Ashley K. - 48*
18. Ryan J. - 48*
20. Jon G. - 47 (63)

Currently, 4 different people could still win the pool, depending on how the Final 4 and Championship games go, so there's still much to be determined!  The Final 4 games are on Saturday evening, and the national championship game is on Monday night.  Good luck!

Oh my gosh - you have no idea how happy I am that I'm in the top half! Way to go Katie & Chris, #1 and #2! Good luck to you lucky ones who can still earn points!

I am so disappointed I am not in last place. I did not think it was possible to do worse than what I did. TOTAL disaster.
