New Bracket Leader

Going into the Final 4 match up, Cate has jumped Brianne for most points! Winning is going to come down to who if UCONN or Purdue win more games at this point…

Points Going into the Final Four:
Cate – 71
Brianne – 70
Ryan – 68
Dr. Heisler – 62
Anastasia – 62
Declan – 61
Megan – 55
Elizabeth – 49

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.

It is still ANY scientists’ game in March Madness

After the first round of the NCAA Men’s March Madness tournament, it is still anyone’s bracket to win (minus a few of you who are going to need some real help with that Kentucky loss!)

Points after round 1:
Cate and Declan – 23
Ryan, Anastasia, Brianne, and David – 22
Megan and Elizabeth 21

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

March Madness is Upon Us!

Despite Dr. Heisler’s attempts to use the real March Madness tournament brackets (NCAA WRESTLING) we are going to having a lab competition!

The winner gets to pick a baked good they want Dr. Heisler (David’s wife) to bake for next month’s lab meeting on April 16th. Additionally, and probably more important than PCR superiority, you get BRAGGING rights for a whole year!

Points will be awarded for each pick as follows:
+2 for round 1
+4 for round 2
+8 for Sweet 16
+16 for Elite 8
+32 for Final 4
+64 for Championship
