I begin with 68,
But finish with just one.
While some may find me boring,
Many find me fun.

Lists look much like trees
With six levels in all.
People will play in pools,
While others play with a ball.

What Next?

cool but doesnt the tournament start with 65?
Apr 16, 2007

Heh. I don't care for professional sports (playing them is great, but I don't really like to watch them) so yeah, I had no idea what it was. But the rhyming was good, and the clues were also great.

That was a pretty random teaser if you ask me, though I enjoyed it, it was pretty well thought out. i probably never would've gotten it, but i love basketball 2 so great job!

The number of starting teams is going to keep increasing, so this one is too time-sensitive. Also, I would say there are 8 levels, not 6.

The group of 68,
The group of 64,
The group of 32,
The Sweet 16,
The Elite 8,
The Final 4,
The pair of finalists,
The champion.

You might say that the champion itself does not consist of any games, but I say that a "level' should not have to consist of games. The one champion team is on a "level" at the top.
