Elite Eight: Northwestern and Duke Div

So we are down to the Elite Eight.  Below are the results from yesterday and then the first two competitions of the Elite Eight.

Round 2: Northwestern and Duke Div Brackets

We have moved on to Round 2 of the tourney and by 10 p.m. Central time tomorrow night we will be down to the Sweet Sixteen.  Voting will be the same as round 1: vote on whatever metric you determine and vote by 10 p.m. the day the match-ups are posted.  Starting with this round you won’t be able to see the results until they are announced the next day to keep a little tension.  Saturday, I will post the updated brackets which will show the Sweet Sixteen.
