Nitro Brackets Contest Recap: After Elite Eight of 2021 March Madness

Jaime Jaquez Jr.

The Gonzaga Bulldogs are looking every bit the part of the favorites to win the national championship. In the Elite Eight, Mark Few’s boys shattered the title dreams of the USC Trojans, putting Gonzaga in a sure spot in the Final Four.

We’ve also seen the Oregon State Beavers’ Cinderella run come to an end at the hands of the Houston Cougars in the Elite Eight. Nevertheless, it was a sensational run for the Beavers, who exceeded most expectations, even covering the spread in all four of their games in the Big Dance.

The Beavers were among the top culprits of millions of busted March Madness brackets across the college basketball universe, but there were also others who were bold enough to pick them advance beyond the first round,

With all that being said, let’s take a look at how each of the brackets — and some of their players — are doing after three days of action in the 2021 March Madness tournament.

Few’s Good Men Intercept Trojan Horse

Gonzaga, Gonzaga, Gonzaga. Mark Few and his Bulldogs are waltzing into the Final Four, barely breaking a sweat, so far in the tournament. Player 5212678 (FREE bracket) has the Bulldogs winning it all, but he/she definitely isn’t the only one who trusts Gonzaga to go all the way.

What makes this player special is that he’s got the most points across all public NitroBracket March Madness contests with 86 points! That’s almost Gonzaga’s season average in points. Player 5212678 is feeding off the success of the Houston Cougars, too, as he/she correctly predicted that Kelvin Sampson would steer his team into the Final Four.

UCLA Leaves Ann Arbor In (B)ruins

The Bruins just became the second team in history to reach the Final Four after playing in the First Four, thanks in large part to the string of sensational performances by Johnny Juzang.

Not many saw that coming, including Player 5170053 from the Hall of Fame bracket, who didn’t even think that the Bruins would get out of the first round. Nevertheless, this player has collected 85 points, as he/she has got three of the four Final Four teams.
