  3. The DJC online contest begins shortly after the brackets are announced. Visit the website at and click on the 'Nothing but Net' link then click on enter. You will be asked for name, company name, phone # and email address, (we promise not to sell or tell this to any third parties.)

As a tie-breaker provision, you will also be asked to predict the number of total points scored in the championship game. Brackets must be completely filled out for the contestant to be eligible. Entries must be received 15 minutes before tip-off of first game on Thursday March 21st.

    • Round 3: three points per win
    • Round 4: four points per win
    • Round 5: five points per win
    • Championship: six points

    The highest total number of points wins first prize, next highest wins second, etc. In the event of tying point totals, total points in the final game will be used to determine prize winners. If there is still a tie, DJC editors will draw out of someone's hat.
