TD 443 - Hoops... (Final results)

Post by clt013 »

It's March, so that means I have created another basketball-related TD. This one has six questions connected to a 320-team 3-on-3 tournament that I wrote (and distributed to my vast network of three friends) and another half-dozen based on the NCAA tournament (which unfortunately did not take place this year). With apologies to Britney Spears, this quiz is titled "Hoops...I Did It Again".

Rules/Notes
1) Lowest point total wins; your score for each question is equal to the total number of players submitting that same answer
2) You may use one drop and take zero points for one question
3) You may elect to take the sheep answer for two questions
4) Wrong responses are the "sheep" answer +4
5) All answers are due by 8 PM Central time on Monday, March 30, 2020
6) Submit answers via this Google form or PM

Questions

I am honored 8-) . I couldn't name a Big 10 state or any of Q2, so I thought I'd lay low.

I didn't want to post to announce my ignorance because it might seem critical of the TD and your hard work. Hell, I'll enter a quilting TD if I can learn something. So I'm lurking and might accidentally learn something :). See you at All Sheep Plus 40!

I'm so glad I changed my answers to the first two questions just before submitting. That way I could chalk up two sheep right at the start! Had two answers ready to go that ultimately went unused (Baltimore and Dubuque Hams). Oh well, at least nothing has changed about TD in the last month.

I thought finalist meant being in the final four
I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.

Shouldn't North Carolina also have Wake Forest on its list? I thought I remember Chris Paul leading them to the finals.

EDIT: good thing I don't rely solely off my high school memory, that was Georgia tech and Jarrett Jack, not WF. Same colors lol
