Contest sponsored b The
Michigan Daily and Pizza House.

What You Win
The most accurate prognosticator will
receive 15 FREE pizzas, topped with any-
thing you'd like, courtesy of Pizza House.
All other contest entrants will receive noth-
ing.
What It Costs
Very little. In fact, nothing.
How to Play
Here's where it gets a little trickier. Per the
usual routine, fill out the bracket as you

would for any other pool. Be sure to write
in a pick for every game, even if you're not
sure of the correct answer - there is no
penalty for guessing. Also, please pick the
total number of points for the two teams in
the championship game, just in case we
have to break any ties. Be sure to write your
name and telephone number, somewhat
legibly, in the top right-hand corner of the
bracket (failure to comply with the previous
stipulation may disqualify you from the con-
test and will definitely make the sports edi-
tors very angry).

More Rules
When you've finished scribbling on the
bracket, cut it out and drop it off at the
Michigan Daily Sports Desk on the second
floor of the Student Publications Building
at 420 Maynard St. All entries must be
received by 11 a.m. Thursday. Only one
entry per person, please.
Who Can Play
You do not need to be a University stu-
dent, faculty or staff member to enter.
However, employees of The Michigan

Daily or Pizza House and their immediate
family members are not eligible to win.
Basketball writers' housemates are also
ineligible due to the fact that they are
exposed to our vast knowledge on a regu-
lar basis. The Michigan Daily reserves the
right to disqualify any contestant in the
event of an illegal entry.
How to Score
You get one point for each correctly
picked first-round winner, two for each
second-round winner, four for each
regional finalist, eight for each semifinalist,

16 for each finalist and 32 for the national
champion (for a total of 192 points). In the
event of a tie, the contestant closest to the
total number of points scored in the cham-
pionship game will be crowned the win-
ner.
Any Questions?
We sure hope not, cause we think we
explained it pretty well. But in case you
do, feel free to call the Daily Sports depart-
ment at 647-3336 in the afternoon or
evening. Thanks for playing.
