Are you planning on filling out an NCAA Tournament bracket this March like 40 million others across the country? Why not do it for charity?

Dust off those high-tops and mesh shorts, throw on your vintage alma mater shirt and join hundreds of sports fans in Opportunity Village's spring basketball contest — Picks for OV: Hoops Hoopla — for the chance to win awesome prizes while supporting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Southern Nevada.

Register now until 7:00 a.m. on March 19th (Round of 64).

The official 68-team bracket will be unveiled at 3 p.m. PDT on Sunday, March 14th. At that time, Hoops Hoopla registrants will be sent a link by event officials with instructions on how to fill out and submit a bracket over the next five days. Reminder emails will also be sent out with a link on Tuesday (March 16), Thursday (March 18) and Friday (March 19) morning. The four play-in games on Thursday, March 18 are byes – no predictions required. Predictions are required only for the (63) games beginning at 9:00 a.m. PDT on Friday, March 19. Amazing prizes, including dining experiences, fitness packages, golf lessons and more, will be awarded to the top five finishers.
