Week 1’s picks have been validated and Week 2’s picks are now live below. Note that they will not be validated against each other until the end of Week 2. 


The Week 2 form is now live. Note that Week 2 encompasses all games during Feast Week — Monday, November 20 to Sunday, November 26.

W2 Deadline: MONDAY NOVEMBER 26 at 12:00 PM.



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.

So as to avoid confusion, we’ll have the Week 2 form ready early next week. Everyone will be emailed the link and it will be posted here. Stay tuned for that.

Here are the W1 picks:




**brought to you by Rush the Court, the Independent Voice of College Basketball, and sponsored by Ticket City**

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!
