GOG 2010-11 #30: NCAA Tournament (with Thursday deadline)

The NCAA Tournament tips off on Thursday Tuesday, although the real thing doesn't start until Thursday.  Cat fans won't have to wait long as UK is in the second group of games for Thursday.  This will be the final GOG of the year unless Kentucky makes a run to the Final Four and there is still a lot to be decided.  btccop71, a2d2, and kcgard2 are all gunning for the GOG Title while triple_threat_stance would appear to have a commanding lead for the GOG Average - but there are still many points to be scored as well as the Preseason GOG, so anything could happen!

Note that entries are due before the noon on Thursday.
