OTB, Springbak launch annual MIVA, MPSF bracket challenge

The MPSF Tournament and MIVA Tournament brackets can now be filled out for a chance to win $50 Starbucks gift card and a pirze-pack from Springbak, Inc. and Off the Block.

Off the Block announced earlier this week that it will reward the gift card and prize-pack to the participant of the annual Off the Block/Springbak, Inc. Postseason Bracket Challenge who can successfully predict every match result from the four conference tournaments and the six-team NCAA Tournament.


The MPSF Tournament and MIVA Tournament portions of this bracket challenge are open for bracket submissions and will remain open until their conference tournaments start later this week. The eight-team MPSF Tournament begins Saturday, while the eight-team MIVA Tournament starts Friday.

The college men’s volleyball postseason started this weekend with the eight-team Conference Carolinas Tournament. In addition, the four conference tournament champions and two at-large bids will advance to the NCAA Tournament beginning May 5 in Palo Alto, California

Bracket challenge participants can fill out their bracket online at challonge.com or at the bottom of this post. Before filling out a bracket, individuals will be asked to create an account on Challonge. Creating an account on Challonge is free and takes less than a minute to complete.

Along with the perfect bracket challenge, the individuals with the highest score for each of the five brackets — Conference Carolinas Tournament, MPSF Tournament, MIVA Tournament, EIVA Tournament and NCAA Tournament —- will receive a prize-pack from Springbak, Inc. and Off the Block.

In the event there are multiple perfect brackets, the gift card will be equally divided among the winners. Also, if there is a first-place tie in the single-bracket challenge, one contestant from the first-place brackets will be randomly selected for the prize. The winner will also be notified via their Challonge account.

This contest is organized by Off the Block and is not affiliated with the Conference Carolinas, EIVA, MIVA, MPSF and NCAA.

Brackets for the Conference Carolinas, EIVA, MIVA, MPSF and NCAA Tournaments can be submitted up until the start of the first match in each tournament.
