RULES: BASKETBALL

Q1 2023/2024 Regular Season

We've divided the teams by Conference and seeded them 1 thru 9. Your job is to pick 4 teams (in each conference) that total 25 or fewer seed points. Your 8 TOTAL teams will earn you points as follows:

....2pts for each regular season win
...10pts for a high playoff berth, seeds 1-6
....5pts for a low playoff berth, seeds 7-10 (mini-tournament teams)
....8pts for each playoff round win*
...10pts for a conference title
...20pts for an NBA Championship

* Points are for each playoff round that is won, not each playoff game. The NBA mini-tournament between seeds 7 thru 10 does not count as a round.

We like you to have a week of information, so picks will lock Mon Oct 30!

Q2 2023 In Season Tournament Knockouts
8 teams qualified for the inaugural IST. We've seeded them into three buckets and seeded them accordingly. Pick 3 teams which add to exactly 7 seed points (a 1/2/4 combination is required). Your teams will earn:
....5pts for a quarterfinal win
...10pts for a semifinal win
...20pts for an IST title

Picks will lock Mon Dec 4 at 430p Pacific!
