Enter The Ruden Report FCIAC Boys Basketball Madness Challenge

With the FCIAC boys basketball tournament starting Saturday and running for five days, this year it can best be called February/March Madness.

We are going to emphasize the final word and invite you to enter The Ruden Report Boys Basketball Madness Challenge.

In a season when the second through eighth seeds were separated by just two games and there was a four-team tiebreaker, this year’s event promises to be as wide open as ever.

So we are ready to award anybody who can pick all seven games correctly with a $50 gift certificate to Colony Grill and a Ruden Report hoodie.

The rules are quite simple: make your picks by commenting to this post. Give us your four quarterfinal and two semifinal winners and then your champion. For a tiebreaker, pick the total points in the final. In the rare event that there is still a tie, the person who gets their pick in first wins.

Here is the schedule of games, with league records. Picks will be accepted until 11:59 Saturday morning.
