The contestants of the Player Pool also succumbed to the unpredictability of the tournament, with each of us losing at least one member of our chosen team. Here are the scores heading into the Sweet 16, along with some analysis regarding where everyone stands moving forward.

NCAA Tournament Player Pool

This year we resurrected the NCAA Tournament Player Pool, gathering up members of the team and holding a draft of our own on Tuesday night before the NC State/Xavier game. With a name randomizer, we produced an order and went through a snake style draft. The game is based on which of these armchair GM’s squads will score the most points over the duration of the tournament. The scoring is simple, total combined points scored by each team's players (no rebounds or assists included).
