GOG 2010-11 #29: SEC Tournament (with Thursday deadline)

The season draws to a close with the start of the SEC tournament this week.  It seems like just a few weeks ago we were watching the latest edition of the Wildcats play exhibition games in Canada and pounding the snot out of the Cardinals in the Bucket.  Kentucky enters the SEC Tournament as a 2 seed but with a favorable draw that presents the Cats with some opportunities to avenge earlier losses.

Baring a run to the Final Four, this will be the penultimate GOG for the season, so put everything you've got into your answers!

Basic Information

  • The Preseason GOG is here.  Follow the link if you have questions about what this whole GOG thing is about.
  • The Tournament bracket can be found here (opens a pdf).
  • Congratulations to kydamcat and GoLightning for winning GOG 28!  Click the link for full results.

A few of the questions involve future games in the semis and final.  While we all hope/expect the Cats to advance to the final game, there remains a possibility they could be upset before that point.  In the event that UK does not play in the semis or finals or both, the answers to these questions will still be graded in an appropriate way.  For example, if the question is "How many assists does Knight have in the Semifinal game" and UK doesn't advance that far, the answer would be "0".

New Question Type

Multiple Guess (point value varies): This new question type offers you the chance to give more than one answer to a question to improve your chances of getting it correct - but at a price!  Here's how it works: on certain questions you will have an option to give two or more answers.  If any of your guesses are correct you will get the question correct and there are no penalties for incorrect answers.

Here's the catch: the more guesses you make, the fewer points you earn with a correct answer.  Each guess after the first will reduce the points you can earn by 1.  Each question will have a set number of maximum guesses you can make.

Here's an example:

6. Predict the SEC Tournament MVP. [4 points Multiple Guess: max 4 guesses]

Here are your options:

  1. You can guess one player and if you are correct you will earn 4 points.
  2. You can guess two players and if either is correct you will earn 3 points.
  3. You can guess three players and if any is correct you will earn 2 points.
  4. You can guess four players and if any is correct you will earn 1 point.

So there you have it.  Multiple guess questions will be clearly indicated as the example was.

Deadline for entries is tip-off of Game 1 at 1:00 PM Thursday, March 10.
