OTB, Springbak launch NCAA Tournament bracket challenge

The NCAA Tournament bracket can now be filled out for a chance to win a $50 Starbucks gift card and a pirze-pack from Springbak, Inc.

Off the Block announced this postseason 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 college men’s volleyball postseason continues with the six-team NCAA Tournament beginning Tuesday, May 3 at Penn State.

The Conference Carolinas Tournament, EIVA Tournament, MIVA Tournament and MPSF Tournament all concluded this weekend. In addition, the NCAA Tournament field, comprised of the four conference champions and two at-large bids, was unveiled Sunday.


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 or NCAA.

Brackets for the NCAA Tournaments can be submitted from when their field is announced to the start of the first match in each tournament.

Deadline to submit bracket is 5 p.m. (CST) Tuesday, May 3. Click here to fill out your NCAA Tournament bracket.
