    (UPDATED to include Final Four and point breakdown)

    It's an SportsJournalists.com tradition for those of us who can't gamble enough...and those of us whose alma maters can't get beyond the Nobody's Interested Tournament.

    Games have started but if you're interested you're on the honor system til 2 am tonight. You can post your picks here or PM them to me. Regions are below and the entire bracket can be found at: http://grfx.cstv.com/photos/schools/nit/sports/m-nit/auto_pdf/2007-Bracket.pdf

    I'll leave the WNIT pool to everyone's favorite emaciated male, Bubbler. :D :D ;D ;D

    Good luck to all (or just me, depending on how much interest this generates)!
