Brianne Pulls Away, but loses her Champion

After last nights games and more upsets, the rankings are as follows:

Brianne – 70
Cate – 63
Ryan – 60 
Dr. Heisler – 54 
Declan – 53 
Megan – 47 
Anastasia – 46 
Elizabeth – 41 

With the elimination of UNC and Creighton this last round, Megan and Elizabeth will not be have enough points left to compete for the top spot. However everyone else (even Brianne with having lost UNC) still has a fighting chance with maximal points possible ranging from 165 (Declan) to 102 (Brianne) so its still really anyone’s game.

Ryan, Anastasia, Brianne, and David – 22
Megan and Elizabeth 21

Next round starts today and each win is worth 2 pts!
