Tournament Challenge leaderboard update
There was a tie between two entries atop the Tournament Challenge standings going into the Elite Eight; user bo_boy808 picked Oklahoma in this matchup while user Greg26383 had Oregon. With the Sooners’ victory, bo_boy808 sits alone atop the leaderboard. If Kansas win the late game, he’ll carry that lead into Sunday’s action, where he has No. 1 seeds North Carolina and Virginia winning over Notre Dame and Syracuse, respectively -- but it’s still very tight in the race for the best Tournament Challenge bracket.
