Nike Swim Puts Up Big Prize Package, Including NG-1 Tech Suit, For 2015 NCAA Women’s Pick ‘Em Contest

The Game

You pick the top four in each event, we give you points. It’s as simple as that. We’ve cut the list off at the top 8 seeds, but have added an “other” option for anyone feeling more daring.

Prizes

We love it when Nike Swim sponsors our Pick ‘Em Contests, because they set the bar at an absolute maximum height for the prize packages that they give to our readers.

They’ve brought their A-game again, and this year for women’s NCAA’s will be awarding:

Daily Prize – the legal entrant with the most points from each day’s events receives the following package. Note that for the daily prize, everyone starts the day with “0” points; carryover isn’t included.

  • Nike Swim Dome Cap
  • Resolute Max Goggle
  • Nike Swim Backpack

Nike Dome Cap Resolute Max Goggles Nike Nike Backpack

Grand Prize – the legal entrant with the most points at the end of the entire meet will receive:

  • Nike Swim Dome Cap
  • Resolute Max Goggle
  • Nike Swim Backpack
  • PLUS – The new Nike Swim NG-1 tech suit.

Scoring

We’ve changed the scoring system ever-so-slightly from the one we used for Worlds, and upped the point values for picking event winners. We felt that as compared to meets like World Championships, picking winners at NCAA’s can be a little tougher, and so we’ve made picking both the 1st and 2nd place finishers worth 4 points.

  • 1st – 5 points
  • 2nd – 4 points
  • 3rd – 4 points
  • 4th – 4 points
  • Successfully predicting a swimmer in the top 4, but in the wrong spot – 1 bonus point

Tie-Breaker

All ties will be broken by the following order:

  1. Who had the most 1st place picks correct
  2. Who had the most 2nd place picks correct
  3. Who had the most 3rd place picks correct
  4. Who had the most 4th place picks correct
  5. Who has the highest overall score (if tie is for a daily prize)
  6. Drawing of lots
