CBB Survivor ’18



After 16 weeks of survivor action, we have a winner! Congratulations to BRANDON TETRO, who not only outlasted everyone else in this year’s game, but he did so while tallying just a single strike in Week 13. Brandon will receive two tickets to the NCAA regional of his choice (thanks to Ticket City!) and the rest of the finalists will receive free RTC t-shirts.

Thank you to everyone who played this season. We will likely be doing an #NCAAsurvivor game next week, so keep an eye out for that early next week. Enjoy March!

You can check the final standings (“Master”) below.



Thanks to everyone who signed up. Keep in mind that Week 1 is a 10-day week encompassing two weekends. We’ll update the losing teams daily on the public spreadsheet but don’t fret if we miss something. The entire sheet will be validated at the end of the week before anyone officially advances.

RULES: Rules are easy. Pick two teams that you think will go unbeaten during the first full week of action (Friday Nov. 10 – Sunday Nov. 19). **NOTE THIS IS A 10-DAY “WEEK” OF ACTION.** You cannot choose teams that you have already chosen in previous weeks, and it is your responsibility to know which teams you’ve already used. Your pool of available teams are the 75 schools from the ACC, Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC.



  • If both your teams go unbeaten in a given week, you advance to next week (note: both teams MUST play at least one game).
  • If your teams split (one goes unbeaten; one loses), you use a strike and advance to next week.
  • If both your teams lose a game (or more than one game), you are eliminated.

ELIMINATIONS: If you attempt to use the same team twice in a season, or you choose a team that doesn’t play that week, or you miss a weekly deadline, you are eliminated. The game will go for as long as there are survivors standing, but we may reserve the right to go to daily lightning rounds (max 2 teams per day, Thursday through Sunday of the 1st and 2nd Rounds) during the NCAA Tournament, if necessary.

STRIKES: You’re allowed two strikes during the season. A THIRD strike eliminates you.

DEADLINE: One entry per person, please. Deadline for Week One is 1 PM ET Friday 11/10. No exceptions!

PICKS: After play begins, everyone’s picks will be documented publicly on the CBB Survivor ’18 page right here.

PRIZES: The last #cbbsurvivor standing will win two tickets to the 2018 NCAA Tournament regional of his choice. Second through fifth place will receive RTC t-shirts. Good luck!
