Congratulations to our Game Twenty Three winner @NJBull !

20th scheduled game- (1 cancelled, 2 postponed/rescheduled for COVID19)

Link to In Game conversation....

As we are encountering postponed and cancelled games again due to various COVID19 situations, understand that if a game is not played, no contest is held. No need to put some 0-0 prediction or make adjustments to existing posts. They will not impact our season stats.

The Contest: Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to select winners and leading contributors in each Bulls hoops game this season. Prizes await, as does the respect and admiration of Bulls fans around the globe. The contest is a season-long chase so don't miss a game.

 

Next...the rules:

1) You must be a registered member of this message board.
2) You must completely answer the contest questions.
3) There can be no modifications to your post after scheduled game start time
4) Your prediction must be part of this original thread
5) Post must be submitted prior to game's published start time.
6) Ties will be decided by Bulliever starting with accuracy on first - last prediction.

7) (NEW/Tentative) PLEASE if you change your prediction- make a new post stating as much otherwise we will have to use whichever prediction information provides you the least total points.

PLEASE READ ABOVE CAREFULLY - If a rule is broken, your entry will not count. You may appeal any ruling, if you choose, but only Bulliever or his designee will hear appeal.

For additional contest rules, please read the small print below.

 

And now, the contest:

For the Bulls game vs. Temple Monday, February 7 (7:00 PM EST, TV: ESPN+), please select the following:

1) The winner
2) The margin of victory by your predicted winner
3) Bulls leading scorer and point total
4) Bulls leading rebounder and rebound total
5) Team Free Throw percentage (i.e. 72.9%)

Please try to keep in the above format so that it will be easier to manage. Sample response would be:

1) South Florida
2) 22
3) Murphy - 21
4) Tchewa - 11
5) 80%


The contest winner will be chosen based on a points system as follows:

1) Correct on winning team - 10 points

2) Correct on Margin of victory - 15 points (subtract one point for each variance in actual and predicted margin - 0 points awarded if actual winner not predicted.)

3a) Correct Leading Scorer - 5 points
3b) Leading Scorer's correct point total -10 points (subtract one point for each variance in actual and predicted total - 0 points awarded if correct leading scorer not predicted.)

4a) Correct Leading Rebounder - 5 points
4b) Leading Rebounder's correct rebound total - 10 points (subtract one point for each variance in actual and predicted total - 0 points awarded if correct leading rebounder not predicted.)

5) Free throw percentage - within 3 percentage points of actual - 10 points; 5 percentage points of actual - 5 points; 10 percentage points -1 point

 

 Games will be decided and winners announced.  There will be a Grand Prize for those with the overall greatest point, "smaller" prizes for each game winner (if indicated/or a relevant game) and prizes for other category wins: tracking of game averages, wins and total points scored for the season!  The key is to be mindful of the game schedule and enter each game!

 

 Winner receives:  Prizes are at the end of season, with prizes along the way for games of higher profile... No prize listed for this game

Good Luck!
