NCAA Elite 8

Day 6 Recap – March 23: The Elite 8 Is Set

The Sweet 16 round did not disappoint. Friday night saw some heartbreakers for anybody who was rooting for the 1 seeds.

Following wins by Texas, Creighton, Miami, and San Diego St., 8-year veteran Andrea Kalthoff has taken the lead. This is Kalthoff’s second time ever at the top of the standings. Her last time in first was March 20, 2015. It’s a great time to be leading the charge as 2 of the last 3 champions have led after the Sweet 16 round. As it stands now, Kalthoff has a 36.7% chance of winning it all.

In second place is Chris Davis who fell to second place. With all the upsets taking place, Davis, who has Alabama winning it all, still has a 9.4% chance to be this year’s winner but he needs the upsets to keep coming.

Rounding out the top three is rookie Reid Turbak who is 4.5 points behind Kalthoff. Turbak has Duke as his championship pick and can finish 2nd at best should things fall his way.


The Gillock family remains in the lead by 4 points over The Brotemarkle family in the 7-9 division. While The Davis family also leads the 4-6 division over The Mears family.

With Andrea Kalthoff’s ascension to the top of the leaderboard, she also takes the Couple Up top spot with her husband Ted Kalthoff.


OVERTIME! standings are now up on our front page. After four games, Josh Bellamy has two brackets tied for first along with Randy Eigner.


In our Survivor Pool, all five people made it out alive to Day 7 which is a new record.

Good luck on your picks and remember, past Survivor picks can always be found on the front page.
