H-O-R-S-E Bracket Set


Bracket Set for H-O-R-S-E Competition, To Be Aired on ESPN

We’re getting sports back, so listen up!

As confirmed last week, the NBA will be hosting an eight-player H-O-R-S-E tournament, which is set to be aired on ESPN.

The entrants include current and past NBA players, WNBA star Allie Quigley, as well as former WNBA star and recent Basketball Hall of Fame selectee Tamika Catchings. Players will compete in pre-taped segments from their individual homes to continue to promote social distancing.

The tournament’s prize pool includes over $200,000 which will be donated to coronavirus relief charities.

So with the bracket set, what are the rules of the tournament?

Each game begins with a coin toss. The most senior player in each matchup will call heads or tails to determine who is to shoot first. Prior to attempting their shots, players must describe each shot they are about to attempt, even specifying a bank shot or a swish. Dunking is prohibited in the tournament. A player who is unable to reproduce the same shot as their opponent, receives a letter. The first to get all five letters  – “H-O-R-S-E” – is eliminated.

It all tips off with the quarterfinals on April 12. The semifinals and finals will be held on April 16.
