Picking Contest Results for Week No. 4; Enter Week No. 5

Fortunately, upsets were not as prevalent this week, and scores were higher for both Division I and Division III. See the details below and on the contest pages for Men's Division I and Men's Division III, which contain links for the weekly results in both alpha order by user name and in ranked order by number of games picked correctly and then number of points assigned in those games.

Above the main table are links to the overall results, also available in alpha or ranked order. We're declaring weekly winners, so feel to enter as many or as few installments as you wish. You can locate your score most easily using the alpha lists, although the rank-ordered listings will show how you stack up versus the field.

Notes

(1) For the overall results, we will drop the lowest score for people who enter every week. However, if you get a lower score or miss an installment down the road, the previously dropped score will re-enter the picture.

(2) Starting with Week #6 and continuing to the finish, the tables of overall results will include everyone who has entered at least n-2 of the n weeks to date.

How did the picks of the consensus fare? Not great, but much better than they did in the two previous weeks. Two big favorites (Princeton and Virginia) and two mild favorites (Harvard and Johns Hopkins) were beaten.
