March Madness, the culmination of college basketball’s season, is finally upon us. The NCAA Tournament bracket has been set and Round 1 games will begin Tuesday.
As the NCAA Tournament draws near, the Golden State Warriors will embark upon a tourney of their own—to determine the best three-point shooter in the organization. All-Star point guard Stephen Curry provides the details.

Shooters participating in the tourney will get five shots at each of five spots around the three-point line: both corners, both elbows and the top-of-the-key. Each shooter is awarded a point for each position at which they outshoot their opponent.
The top seeds in the tournament are Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Coach Mark Jackson and Steve Blake.
Curry proposed the idea a couple weeks ago after losing in a head-to-head three-point contest with Coach Jackson after practice.
Given a choice among the 16 participants, going chalk is probably the safest bet in this tournament.
Looking for an upset, Andre Iguodala might be the best bet. However, should assistant coach Brian Scalabrine channel his 2006-07 form, he could pose a threat—though that is less likely.
Who do you think is going to win?
