NCS Hoops Bracket Challenge

Back by popular demand — and revamped for 2010 — is the North Coast Section basketball playoffs bracket challenge. At stake here is the all important ETERNAL GLORY! We’re going to make things a bit tougher for you guys this year as you’ll be forced to fill out your entire bracket before the tournament begins. Choose wisely, because you won’t be able to make new selections after each round. You’ll be picking both the boys and girls, Divisions I-VI, so be prepared to bone up on your Ferndale and Rincon Valley Christian knowledge just as much as Salesian, Bishop O’Dowd, Newark Memorial, Berkeley and everyone else. Of course, you can only choose to predict the brackets that your interested in, but it’ll make it hard to gain Eternal Glory that way. Below is the link and let the picking begin. Deadline for Divisions I-III is 5 p.m. on Tuesday and for Divisions IV-VI is 5 p.m. on Wednesday. Good luck. Standings will be posted after each round.

*A tip for when you visit the link and make your selections. When you click on a bracket to do the predictions, open it in a new window. That way when you are ready to go to the next bracket, you can go back to that page and open the next bracket in a new window.
