LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - One of Lexington's oldest March Madness traditions is continuing this year, but it isn't receiving as much support as it usually does.
The law firm of Baldani, Rowland and Richardson is hosting their annual NCAA bracket pool, but without UK in the mix this year, participation is down. Despite not having the hometown team to cheer for, organizers of the bracket pool say there's still plenty of reason to play.
Organizers say that the payout for the winners of the bracket challenge is a great incentive for why to participate. The winning bracket will receive 70 percent of the pool, the second place bracket will receive 20 percent and the third place team will receive 10 percent. Organizers add the payout has always been at least $1,000 in the past, even when Kentucky hasn't been that good.
The cost is $5 to enter, and the competition is open to the public. All entries must be submitted by Thursday at noon.
