Gontram Architecture’s NCAA Basketball Pool Bracket is Compete!

Villanova beats Michigan in a good, albeit non-buzzer-beater game. George Semaan (from Michigan) edges out Marcia Cunningham and Josh Whitney in our Pool! Lauren Grosshandler comes in dead last to claim the Horse’s Butt trophy.

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.

Picks are due by 11:00 AM EDT, March 15th.  (Note:  The first round (“play in”) is not included in our Pool.)  If you are 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.

It doesn’t even matter if you know anything about college basketball – trust me, it doesn’t.  In fact, an average amount of knowledge seems to be a hindrance as I have not even SNIFFED a prize position in the history of the Pool.
