Sixteen could be sweet for the “Brother Bracket!”

By HiloICoC WebServer.

If you thought the first round of college basketball was wild, wait until you see what happened after the second round of the “Brother Bracket!”

After a bunch of upsets and bracket-busting buzzer-beaters, the second round of the men’s college basketball tournament made the first round look like a mild-mannered breeze rather than a wild wind in Hilo!

The tournament is down to sixteen teams, and our participants in our bracket contest are hopeful to still be alive to win some movies and coffee.

Each correct pick for the first 64 teams is 1 point; for the 32 teams, 2 points; the 16 teams, 4 points; the 8 teams, 8 points; the 4 teams, 16 points; and the last two, 32 points.

“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 45 165
Levi 42 162
Evan 41 153
Jim 44 132
Shane 44 128
Joseph 29 105
Stefano 35 55

Chris is still in the lead, but Levi is hot on his heels, only a few points behind. Evan is not too far behind Levi. Jim, Shane and Joseph are still in the running, considering how unpredictable this tournament has been. Stefano is, well, let’s just say that Stefano has been a good sport.

Here are the brackets after the teams have been whittled down to the Sweet Sixteen. “O” means that the team is out, so that team cannot score a brother any more points.
