First bracket bite the dust? Here's your second chance

Did your pick for national champion get booted in the second round? Does your Final Four look more like a list of first round upsets? Can you count the number of Sweet 16 participants you picked correctly on a single hand? This year's edition of March Madness may not have showcased as many big contenders going down early as in previous years, but there were enough upsets to warrant labeling this year's tourney a bracket busting bonanza.

Silver Chips Online is willing to give you a second chance. Fill out the official Sweet 16 Challenge bracket (including a score for the championship game) and bring it to room 165 during lunch before the end of 5B on Thursday, March 25. The winner receives free movie tickets. Click here for a Sweet 16 bracket.

Scoring is tallied as follows:
Sweet 16 games - two points for each correct
Elite Eight games - three points for each correct
Final Four games - four points for each correct
Championship game - eight points if correct

The student with the most points at the end of the tournament is the winner and will be announced online the week following spring break.
