-In the Sweet 16 round, entrants will pick two teams to win straight-up.

Hi Colin, 2 questions I know will be asked. Pure example you pick your 1st 8 games 4 on Saturday 4 on Sunday.

1. Must all 8 picks be made at once? Meaning before Saturdays first tip off game like filling out a bracket.

2. If you make a pick and the team cannot play due to Covid-19 would you than be out of the contest?

again thanks for all you do!

1. Yes, all games in a single round must be picked before the first game of that round.

2. This is an exception to the first question, if a game gets cancelled you are responsible for choosing another team.

I'll clarify that within the 'Other Rules' section thanks!
