As we announced on Sunday, we are simulating the entire NCAA Tournament as if it were still taking place. Results will be announced on the days the games would have been, hopefully giving us some levity during one of the most difficult times imaginable.
Unfortunately, we could not figure out the logistics of a bracket challenge, so the fun stays here for now.
The simulations are being run via ncaagamesim.com by selecting the matchups and compiling them based on what happens with ONE CLICK of the mouse. This is the best way for us to simulate the chaos that could ensue during a single basketball game.
Here are your results for the First Four games, which would have taken place on Tuesday and Wednesday in Dayton, Ohio.
First Four Results
Midwest Region: (11) NC State 68, (11) UCLA 64
East Region: (16) Boston U. 95, (16) Prairie View 62
East Region: (11) Wichita State 90, (11) Richmond 67
West Region: (16) NC Central 74, (16) Robert Morris 61
And here’s what your updated bracket looks like heading into Thursday’s official opening of the NCAA Tournament simulation.
We’ll be back Thursday to update the first batch of first round games.
