The Madness Is Here

Welcome to the 2021 men's basketball Tournament Challenge. It's that time of year again, when all the chatter about teams involves phrases like: body of work; good wins; bad losses; and of course, RPIs and the dreaded "bubble." But once the bracket is revealed, how -- and even why -- teams got in matters little, and the excitement of following your bracket begins.

Select the teams you think will win each tournament game from the first round all the way through the championship game. You'll get points for each game you pick correctly, with the points increasing during each round of the tournament.

If you score the most points, you'll have a chance to win the grand prize: a trip for two to Hawaii for the 2021 Maui Jim Maui Invitational and a $10,000 gift card.*

You can also test out your skills by picking all the NCAA tournament games and more via the ESPN Streak game, where you can compete for $5,000 in guaranteed prizes each month.  

Here are some notable tools and articles to check out as the tournament moves along:
