Picking Contest Results for Week No. 9; Enter Week No. 10

Although there were some mild upsets in Division I, the situation did ease for contestants this week. In Division III, the waters continued to be calm. The relative difficulty of the two contests might be captured this way: The correct pick percentages for the leaders in D1 wouldn't put them in the top 50 in D3.

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 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 include everyone who has entered at least n-2 of the n weeks to date.

(3) Note that the entry deadline for D1 is 5:00 p.m. ET this week.

How did the picks of the consensus fare? Favorites fell in four games, but two of those were close to 50-50. The losses by Gerogetown (picked by 63%) and Villanova (67%) hurt scores the most.
