So you think you know District 3 basketball? Prove it.
Enter our bracket challenge to predict all eight District 3 basketball tournaments for a shot at a GameTimePA prize pack.
You'll be competing against GameTimePA.com reporters from across District 3. And you'll be able to track your accuracy with a searchable leaderboard to see how you stack up to our reporters and the rest of the competitors.
There are eight chances to win -- the person (outside of the reporters) with the most points in each bracket will collect a GameTimePA basketball. The eight winners will then have a shot at winning a $25 gift card in a random drawing.
The challenge starts with the first round of each tournament. The boys' and girls' classes AAAA and AAA begin Feb. 18 and 19, and classes AA and A begin Feb. 21 and 22. You must submit your bracket via the links below before the first-round tip-off times.
For scoring, you'll get 1 point for each correctly predicted first-round game, and points double for each additional round. So correct second-round predictions are worth 2 points, third round is worth 4 points, and so on. Tiebreakers are based on date/time the bracket was completed, awarded to the earliest prediction, so fill out your brackets early to get an edge.
