NCAA Basketball: Final Four-South Carolina vs Gonzaga Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

We’re down to the National Championship game tonight between Gonzaga and North Carolina. After Saturday’s National Semifinals, Kiks moved from third place to first place even though previous first-place contestant Kyle earned 16 points on Saturday. Kiks now has 112 points and can add another 32 tonight if Gonzaga wins. Kyle is now in second and has maxxed out his point total at 97.

Russ moved up from 4th to 3rd and has maxxed out his points at 91 while fourth place now belongs to casey o. Casey o has 90 points and North Carolina tonight which means that casey o will win if the Tar Heels win tonight.

Rounding out the current top 5 is Dejannay who has maxxed out at 87 points.
