Enter The Rambler’s 2023 Bracket Challenge


The Rambler

The 2023 men’s NCAA Tournament field was selected earlier Sunday. That means March Madness is here, and The Rambler’s Bracket Challenge is back. The tenth edition of the contest is free to enter and open to anyone at Cathedral Prep, including students, faculty, and staff. One need not know anything about basketball to enter. In fact, sometimes knowing less may be a blessing in disguise.


  1. Entrants must be a current Prep student, faculty, or staff member to enter. Please write your name and grade on your bracket. Click to download and print the official bracket. Or, see Mr. Hubert for a copy.
  2. All brackets must be emailed to [email protected] or hand-delivered to Mr. Hubert by Thursday, March 16 at 12 p.m. Eastern time. No late submissions will be accepted.
  3. You must fill in a winner for all of the games beginning with the First Round games to be played on Thursday and Friday. You do not need to include the First Four (“play-in”) games that will be played on Tuesday and Wednesday. Please write out the team names; do not write seed numbers.
  4. In case of a tie, write your prediction for the total points scored in the championship game in the spot indicated on the bracket.
