Join Catholic Social Services’ fun twist on a basketball bracket pool to raise awareness about our organization. No basketball knowledge required!
Information about our services will be sent between rounds,* and as a tiebreaker, the bracket with most Catholic schools correctly picked will win. Spread the word to family and friends!
No entry fee is required; the bracket is free to enter. While you’re visiting our website, we invite you to consider making a donation of $20 or more per bracket and to learn about our services. Any donations will not increase your odds of winning.
The winner will receive a bottle of New Riff single-barrel bourbon, two tickets to the Shine Dayton Celebration on October 6, and a night’s stay for two and the Fairfield Inn and Suites Dayton (valid through October 31) – an over $350 value! The second place winner will also receive a bottle of New Riff bourbon.
To enter, simply follow the link below, create an account if needed, and enroll in Catholic Social Services’ Holy Hoops! bracket pool. Follow instructions to select which schools you believe will win each game of the tournament. Once you submit your bracket, you could win!
The pool will open after brackets are announced on the evening of Sunday, March 12. All brackets must be submitted by noon on Thursday, March 16. Must be 21 to enter.

All 2023 CBSSports.com Bracket Challenge Rules apply, unless otherwise stated.
HOLY HOOPS TIE-BREAKER RULE: If two (or more) brackets finish with the same highest score, the winner will be determined based on the amount (and weight) of correct games predicted in which CATHOLIC schools win. Additional tiebreaking points will be awarded proportionally for a given round (i.e. one point for each Catholic winner correctly predicted in the first round, two points for each in the second round, etc.).
Additional Tiebreaker: If multiple brackets have the same score after the Holy Hoops tiebreaker rule is implemented, a random drawing will be used to determine first and/or second place prizes.
SCORING: The scoring will for correct picks is as follows:
|Round||Weight for each correct pick|
