Welcome to the post season, it's been a fun year for far and we are 3 weeks from crown the NCAA and NIT champions.

Pinnacle Lines

The top eight who qualify will be entered into the NCAA pool; the next eight will compete for the faux NIT title. It will be set up like a bracket - 1 v 8, 2 v 7, etc. Each participant then must select AT LEAST five games each week from the NIT and NCAA schedule to meet his tournament quota. Also, one must assign one of the picks as his TIEBREAKER pick; the amount by which you win or lose will break ties with participants with the same record. Winners will advance to the semis, then the finals, etc.

You must send me a private message and I will post all the picks each day once the first game has started. The line you send me must be the line at that time, not the best line available. You are welcome to edit your picks or change the pick all together by sending another private message. You can select lines ahead of time, for example if you see a line for a Friday game you like on Monday you can send the pick then. I will store them until that day (you don’t need to resend the pick the day of the game)

READ THAT AGAIN Your pick is due by tip-off time of the FIRST MEN'S COLLEGE BASKETBALL GAME of the day, whether it's the NCAA or NIT or CBI or CIT. Not by the tip-off time of the game you're selecting but by tip-off of the FIRST GAME.

Over/unders, against the spread, NIT, CBI, CIT, NCAA, they're all fair game. What's consistent is you pick one game a day. Other thing is you have to meet that FIVE game quota and select a tiebreaker each week.

Here are the final standings
Code:
Name		Wins	Losses	Ties	Winning %	Picks
twisted3829	31	16	1	0.656		48

Re: 2016-17 Lock of the Day Contest. Postseason Week 1

I don't know why, but I've clicked on Twisted link's twice (once Sunday, once this morning) and it hasn't loaded. Maybe that's what Bona was saying about that's odd?? Let's see if this is any better??

Re: 2016-17 Lock of the Day Contest. Postseason Week 1

because agoo isn't able to pick in the postseason and he suggested dropping to the 8th seed to give the 1 a bye instead of giving someone else the bye

Re: 2016-17 Lock of the Day Contest. Postseason Week 1

I had Cal/Bakersfield as my "tiebreak" before I changed it at the last minute. So far I'm happy I did that. Shout out to Cal though for showing up!! Bakersfield is going to probably hit 65 or 70 points, and it may not be enough for the over. Great job motivating the club Cuonzo Martin! If I were a Cal fan I'd WISH you'd take another job over the summer.
