Prize Selection:

After the March 13th/14th First Four Round, the bracket group leader will win the prize listed above. Assuming there are several participants tied for first place at that time, a random process will be used to select the prize winner from the members tied for first place.

The four BCW Supplies group participants with the most bracket points after the tournament will each be a potential winner. If needed, the tiebreaker system from the CBSSports Bracket Manager will be utilized (prediction of the combined points in the Championship game). If another tiebreaker level is needed, a coin flip conducted by BCW Supplies will determine the winner.

Prize Claiming Process:

Each potential winner will be notified after the tournament, using the email address registered in the CBS Brackets Manager. After the email is sent, the potential winner will have seven days to respond to the email and claim their prize. If a potential winner does not respond to the email within one week, BCW Supplies has the right to disqualify that participant as a potential winner and to contact the next participant with the most points, and so forth, until all prizes are awarded.
