Welcome to the 2018 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.
Select the teams you think will win each tournament game from the first round all the way through the championship game. You'll get points for each game you pick correctly, with the points increasing during each round of the tournament.
If you score the most points, you'll have a chance to win the grand prize of a $10,000 Amazon Gift Card and a trip to the 2018 Maui Jim Maui Invitational.
You can also test out your skills by picking all the NCAA tournament games and more via the ESPN Streak game, where you can compete for $35,000 in guaranteed prizes each month. Plus, on both March 15 and March 16, the user who creates the longest Streak that day can win $5,000.
Don't forget, you can also create up to 25 brackets in Women's Tournament Challenge!
