Pekin Insurance Holiday Tournament Bracket Challenge

The 54th Pekin Insurance Holiday Tournament is just 10 days away. I am hosting a bracket challenge. Entries are due by Wednesday, December 26, 2018 at 11 PM CST. Post your entries in this thread. The winner will receive a tournament t-shirt, a gate pass to the 2019 tournament and bragging rights.

Scoring will be as follows:
1st round games = 1 point per correct game (game #s 1-8)
2nd round games = 2 points per correct game (game #s 9-12)
Semi-final games = 3 points per correct game (game #s 14-15)
3rd place game = 1 point per correct game (game #31)
Championship game = 4 points per correct game (game #32)

Tiebreaker - Include the championship game combined score. In case of a tie the closest to the actual combined score will be the winner.

Winners for consolation games and winners' bracket games not noted above do not need to be picked.
