It’s down to 32 in the “Brother Bracket!”

The college basketball tournament is now down to 32 teams!

Thirty-two teams have been eliminated, and some of the brothers in our church are hopeful that their picks are still alive. Here is an update on our “Brother Bracket.”

“Points” means the amount of points the players have so far. “Possible” means the amount of overall points the player may score by the end of the tournament.

Player Points Possible
Chris 25 181
Shane 24 176
Jim 24 163
Stefano 21 179
Evan 21 155
Levi 20 170
Joseph 18 114

So far, Chris is in the lead. Shane, Stefano and Levi still have a good chance to catch Chris, though.

Here are the brackets after the first round. “O” means that the team is out, so that team cannot score a player any more points.
