This "week" you will pick two survivors for each of the first two days of the NCAA Tournament -- two teams on Thursday; two teams on Friday.
NOTE THAT THE SURVIVOR GAME WILL END ON SUNDAY MARCH 19. THE MOST LIKELY SCENARIO IS THAT YOU WILL BE ASKED TO PICK ONE MORE TEAM ON SATURDAY AND ONE MORE TEAM ON SUNDAY (PLUS TIEBREAKERS), BUT THAT WILL DEPEND PARTIALLY ON HOW MANY SURVIVORS ARE LEFT AFTER THE FIRST ROUND. WE COULD ALSO ASK FOR TWO MORE TEAMS TO BE PICKED EACH DAY. PLAN ACCORDINGLY.
Same general rules apply. You cannot choose teams that you have already chosen in previous weeks, and it is your responsibility to know which teams you've already used. Your pool of available teams are the 75 schools from the ACC, Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC.
If both your teams go unbeaten on Thursday, you advance to Friday (note: both teams MUST play an NCAA Tournament game).If your teams split (one goes unbeaten; one loses), you use a strike and advance to Friday.If both your teams lose a game, you are eliminated.
If you attempt to use the same team twice in a season, or you choose a team that doesn't play that week, or you miss a weekly deadline, you are eliminated. The game will go for as long as there are survivors standing, but we may reserve the right to go to daily lightning rounds during the NCAA Tournament if necessary.
You're allowed two strikes during the season. A THIRD strike eliminates you. Note this rule is new this season.
One entry per person, please. Deadline for Week 18 is 12:00 PM Thursday March 16 (start of the NCAA Tournament 1st Round). No exceptions!
The last #cbbsurvivor standing will win two tickets to the 2017 NCAA Tournament regional of his choice. Second through fifth place will receive RTC t-shirts. Good luck!
