March Madness is Here!

Football season is over, and it’s not quite time for baseball yet…which means it’s that time of year again!  The tournament of all tournaments is here, where the pros of the future get a chance to show their stuff to the entire country.  It also means … March Madness Pools!

For the second annual Allied Wire and Cable Basketball Pool, things are going to work a little differently.  Instead of downloading and printing a bracket, we have an online program that makes the process quick and easy.  All you have to do is click on your pick for all the games of each round and the team’s name will advance.  If you change your mind, just click on the other team’s name and your pick will be replaced. The last step is to guess the total points scored amount and click “Submit.”

Just like during the game, there are a few rules to keep in mind:

  • The tournament is open to anyone in purchasing or engineering at a qualifying company.
  • There is a limit of one entry per person.  If you submit multiple entries, the most recent will be used.
  • The cut-off time is before the tip-off of Game 1 at 12:20PM on Thursday March 19th. Make sure you get your picks in on time!
  • Points will be given for each correct pick throughout the tournament:
    • Round 1 – 1 Point
    • Round 2 – 2 Points
    • Sweet Sixteen – 4 Points
    • Elite Eight – 8 Points
    • Final Four – 16 Points
    • Championship – 32 Points
  • The winner will be the player with the most points at the end of the tournament. In the case of a tie, the player who guesses the total points score the closest without going over wins.

And of course, everyone’s favorite part…The Prizes!

  • One GRAND PRIZE winner will receive a brand-new HDTV!
  • Two RUNNERS-UP will receive an iPod!
  • Weekly winners will receive Allied Prize Packs!

If you have trouble with the program, you can still download a copy of the bracket and make your picks the old fashioned way.  Just click on the link to download a blank bracket and fax it back to 484-928-6720 or e-mail it to basketball@awcwire.com.
