The Elite Eight has been decided, including two #1s, a #2, two #3s, two #9s, and a #11. And of our 61 contestants, a grand total of two (2) got as many as half right (Fitch and Steinhardt each got 4 of the Elite Eight). It goes without saying that none of us got more than half right, but we'll go ahead and say it anyway. 34 of us got 3 of 8 right, 22 of us got 2 of 8 right, and three cunning entrants managed a mind-numbing one (1) correct Elite Eight team (Mash Leach, Howard, Booth).

Harlan (234 points) still clings to the tiniest of leads over hard-charging D'Zuro (233), whose wild card Florida State has been very, very good to him. Especially since nobody else's wild card is still playing. D Josephs (232) is also breathing hard down the leaders' necks. Thirteen other entrants are within a Final Four choice of the leader, with Blane (226), L Donadio (225), and E Leach (225) foremost among them.

Howard (161 points) has dropped into the bottom, comfortably behind Mash Leach (176), Sciarabba (177), and J Broder (178).

Full standings may be found on the right-hand side of the page, or here.
