NCS Pick’Em challenge

Pick’Em Challenge is back for its second year.

This is how it’s going to work: Below we have every first round game, boys and girls, divisions 1 through 4. Feel free to include your D5/D6 picks as well, they will not be part of the scoring. Your job, as the loyal Prep Corner reader, is to comment to this post with your picks for every game. Picks are due by 7 p.m. Tuesday Feb. 24. After each round, I’ll add up the scores, post the standings and set up for the next round. Eventually we’ll have a champion to name and it should be fun. Send the link out to your friends, the more the merrier.

Last year’s champion was Hoop Fan, however he has since changed his name to Prep Fan. To view his eternal glory certificate, click HERE. High School Sports Junkie finished in second with Coleman (who we haven’t heard from since) also in the mix.

—————————————————————————-

 

Copy the list of games below, paste it in a new comment to this post. Erase the team you think is going to lose. If you don’t pick a game you will automatically lose that game. Each correct pick is worth 1 point (other rounds will be scored the same). If you want to tell us why you picked your games, feel free. If you win, you will automatically be granted eternal glory.

  • dverdin

    CV struggles with Deer Valley?? after going to the line 30 times and Dv only scoring two from the line??? at home??

  • Prep Fan

    Ouch! I missed 6 in the first round, and D4 hasn’t even played yet. Both of the San Lorenzo teams let me down. The defending champ is wounded. The door is open….Who is going to step up?

  • cv

    Dverdin.. maybe you should find something better to do with your time than bag on CV. If you noticed this is the 2nd NCS playoff win for them.. Or is that you are jealous they are doing so well?? Why don’t you congratulate the team and coach for a job well done rather than question why they didn’t win by more???

  • The Trojan Den

    stfu dverdin you aint sh*t. We led the whole game pretty comfortably, we didnt play our best basketball sure, but we got an easy win. i dont think we went to the line 30 times idiot. and dv got to the line a lot too the refs were on one, they made more than two you dont know what you are talking about.

    keep talkin that sh*t. come see the trojan den we will f u up.

  • High School Sports Junkie

    Did Jammin say this was for fun only. This isn’t just for fun this is for eternal glory, reputations are at stake here. 20 years from now when this challenge is still being played and the past winners names appear you can show your grandkids “look at what granpa could do when he still had his mind”

  • Prep Fan

    I sure hope they let Jammin in, even though he was late. He obviously didn’t cheat, as he missed more than I did. I don’t need my grandkids coming on here seeing that I came in last place in 2009. :0

  • Kyle Bonagura

    Yeah, I’m letting him in. Pretty obvious by his picks he didn’t have any information of what was going on.

  • http://www.yahoo.com/ bbfan36

    i starting reading the predictions and thought, wow, finally a post without alot of bashing and cussing, but I spoke to soon with the last few comments. Anyways, it’s fun to see what everyone else predicts! Great idea Kyle!

  • E_CULB

    SO when do we pick round 2?

  • Prep Fan

    Here are the D4 winners from tonight:

    BOYS: Healdsburg; Fortuna; McKinleyville.
    GIRLS: Justin Siena; Piedmont; SPSV; Fortuna.

    We had to finish the first round games before picking round 2. He’ll post the standings.

    Oh my bad i thought rd.1 was already over.

    Might as well let the big guy in Kyle, as he obviously didn’t cheat. The more the merrier. It just makes eternal glory that much more glorious for the eventual winner.
