It may be March Modness, but we’re also in the mood to celebrate March Madness! As Dee has announced on Twitter, he’s hosting an NLSC NCAA Basketball 10 Tournament over Parsec, which is set to tip off this weekend. The games begin on March 11th, with an Elite 8 bracket. I’ll be participating in this tournament, along with Stildo33, KingJMASE, jrolling2003, FathomDanny, BrentLane, TecmoBowlGGL, and Mole.
Like the real NCAA tournament, the games are single elimination. We’ll be playing two 12-minute halves, on the default difficulty setting. The winner will receive a $20 Steam gift card, courtesy of Dee. You can of course expect to see highlights of the games on our YouTube channel. Previous NLSC Tournaments have been a blast for all of the participants, full of goodwill, competitive spirit, and several spectacular moments on the virtual hardwood. I have no doubt that this tournament will be just as fun for everyone.
Check out the full brackets below! You can keep up to date with the results and highlight reels here in the Forum. While you’re waiting for the Tournament to tip off, check out my NCAA Basketball 10 retrospective for Wayback Wednesday that I posted back in 2021. Also hit us up with any suggestions for games that you’d like to see us run tournaments with in the future. For more information on how to connect and play basketball games (or indeed, anything) using Parsec, check out this tutorial that Dee put together.
