Project Description
NCAA Tourney DotNetNuke module allows you to run NCAA basketball tournaments support brackets and basic scoring for the tournament.

Project Status

This module was released by ModuleMasters.com in 2005.  It was used to run NCAA basketball tournaments within DNN for several years.  Now I am releasing this as an open source module after a couple of years of it being retired.  

The module works in DNN 3.X - 6.X and was originally written using the DNN 3.X class library approach in VB.NET.  It can be used as is with the current teams for the tourney loaded up for the tournament vi a SQL Script.  

This project is looking for a new champion to take control of the module to convert it to a more recent build structure and add additional features such as automated tourney updates, bracket setup, advanced scoring points, etc.  If you are interested in helping out with this project, please email ben@beckersolutions.com!
