Welcome to the 2017 men's basketball Tournament Challenge. It's that time of year again, when all the chatter about teams involves phrases like: body of work; good wins; bad losses; and of course, RPIs and the dreaded "bubble." But once the bracket is revealed, how -- and even why -- teams got in matters little, and the excitement of following your bracket begins. Remember, if you score the most points, you'll have a chance to win the grand prize of a $10,000 in Amazon Gift Cards and a trip to the 2017 Maui Invitational.
Best of luck with your selections and remember to check back here before the Sweet 16 tips off on March 23 to play Tournament Challenge Second Chance (coming soon!), the game that gives you another go at the bracket (you can create up to 10 brackets).
Plus, test out your skills by picking all the NCAA tournament games and more via ESPN's Streak for the Cash, where you can compete for $35,000+ in guaranteed prizes each month.
