NCAA Basketball Pool
Gontram Architecture’s NCAA Basketball Pool is Underway!
Welcome to Gontram Architecture’s Annual NCAA Men’s NCAA Basketball Pool, where brackets look SO GOOD when you enter them, and quickly turn to garbage by the end of the 1st day. This is truly the best time of the year (aside from the Women’s College World Series, that is). Follow the “Madness” by checking out the reports listed below. You can also follow our Blog and check us out on Twitter. Tweet your comments using #GAPool.
Again this year, you have the opportunity to give back to several great causes, so review the information below and see if you can help make a difference. Any support is greatly appreciated!
A Pool with a Twist: Jim Valvano’s words in his 1993 ESPY speech, “Don’t Give Up . . . Don’t Ever Give Up!”, have motivated millions of people to enact change. His dream of curing cancer is still not realized, but is further along because of his inspiration. This year, for every Pool entry received, Gontram Architecture and Ten Penny Construction will donate $1 to The V Foundation for Cancer Research. Participants also have to opportunity to give towards our “team” (click button below), but it is not mandatory to play. We just wanted to give back to the organization founded by one of the most memorable personalities of this special Tournament.
Also, a very special opportunity to provide some much needed help to some folks that are suffering from the effects of cancer.
- Fundraising efforts have been underway for cancer care support for a softball player at Stony Brook. Unfortunately, she lost her battle last week. Read about her story and how you can help her family HERE.
- Also, the UNCG Softball team is raising funds to benefit a 16-year old girl recently diagnosed with cancer. Read about her story and how you can donate HERE.

Picks were due by 11:00 AM EDT, March 16th. (Note: The first round (“play in”) is not included in our Pool.) If you were not able to get your picks in on time, make sure to register for the Men’s NCAA Basketball Pool HERE. That way, you will receive updates before the tournament pool next year!
Gontram Architecture’s version of the traditional office NCAA Basketball Pool is unique. Our Pool is FREE – no money, no trouble with the authorities. It’s open to anyone. (We don’t encourage folks under 18 yrs old to play, but we don’t object either.) A couple of years ago, 6 of the top 10 finishers were still in elementary school! We have great prizes from great sponsors!
This year, as in years past, there is NO entry fee, but lots of great prizes to be won! There’s even a nice trophy for the biggest loser.
