Well, we are about 2 weeks away. Time to sign up! Let me know if you are in, and reach out to those who arent as present on the site if you can and let them know this thing has managed to last another year!

What are the rules/buy in/payouts/etc? I'd consider joining in, but I know jack shit about college bball. I couldn't tell you the name of a single player.

TBH, we all used to know a TON. Now...we pretty much google the top scorers from the top seeds, cause none of us keep up.

But the just is we draft players in a snake draft. You get your players total points scored for the tournament. So, weighing a 20 PPG on a 7 seed vs an 11 PPG on a 2 seed is where it gets fun. 

Winner is total points scored from team. We also have payouts for highest single game and highest single player. I can check, but I think the last few editions have been $50 buy-in.

Welcome. Just as an FYI, you will need to be pretty present Sunday after Selection Show thru Wednesday night. We try and get about 10-12 picks in.

There are sites that well sell you a cheat sheet for like $5-$10 or you can just look up the top players on the top seeds

Sticking with last years payouts...(based on 11 $50 payouts).

  • 1st Place $250
  • 2nd Place $100
  • 3rd Place $50
  • Top Scorer (Total) $75
  • Top Scorer (Game) $75


If we add 3 more -- 11 regulars, plus Brutus (in), I92 and Justin (maybe) -- I'd probably add $50 to 1st and 2nd and $25 to both scorers.

Terry and Goon are in. Thats already 9. So definitely enough to play again this year. Lets go another 1 to 1.5 weeks to allow for sign-ups and then I will draw for the draft to give people a few days to craft the draft strategy/research.


Additionally, I will be courtside working the Milwaukee games. If anyone plans to attend, hit me up and we can meet up for a bit. 

EDIT: Birddog make it 10

Happy to be back with another great Cats team ready to run. 

Same Venmo as last year for the buy-in?

I'm also going to finalize the draft order on Wednesday sometime. So everyone can check by EOB wednesday. I'll start a draft thread for it.
