We are working our way towards the end. After this weekend we will be down to the Final Four. Before that happens, we need to take a look at those that showed their skills in getting teams into the Elite Eight. Let's see who have earned Wizardary in the Third Round of the XXXI Shootout!
SUPREME ULTIMATE WIZARDS

There were three true surprise teams make the Elite Eight, Loyola-Chicago, Kansas State, and Florida State. In addition, if you consider anyone outside of a #1 or #2 seed an upset pick, then you throw in Michigan and Texas Tech. Of those five teams, only two gurus were able to get three teams through to the Elite Eight. For that achivement we award Supreme Ultimate Wizard to:
McLOVIN and MR. BDBM
