How Do Hoops Mania Squares Work?

Similar to Super Bowl squares, Hoops Mania squares consist of a 10x10 grid with the numbers 0-9 randomly assigned across the top and side axes.  Each square of the grid is claimed by a pool participant.  With this format, every NCAA tournament game (excluding the First Four) will have a pool winner and pool participants can win multiple times with the same square.

Each square costs $25


  • Participants will login to FYB’s Hoops Mania pool page on and click grid square(s) to claim.

  •  If you have participated in the past, log in to the site to claim your 2021 Tournament squares.  Please DO NOT create a new account.  

  • Payment can be made via Venmo (@Framingham-YouthBasketball), PayPal ([email protected]), check (payable to Framingham Youth Basketball), or cash.

  • Grid numbers are provided to participants once the grid is complete or the Tournament begins, whichever comes first.

  • Participants’ square(s) are theirs for every game of the tournament.

  • At the end of every game, the site will compare the last digit of both teams' scores to determine a winner.

  • The site lists each individual winner as well as an aggregate count of how many times each pool member has won.

$25 per square x 100 squares = $2,500

  • First round: $5/game x 32 = $160
  • Second round: $10/game x16 = $160
  • Sweet Sixteen: $25/game x 8 = $200
  • Elite Eight: $50/game x 4 = $200
  • Final Four $100/game x 2 = $200
  • NCAA Championship game: $300

Total Payouts: $1,220
FYB Donation to Framingham-based organizations: $1,2880

Winners Announced:

  • Winners names will be emailed to all pool participants who provide a valid email address after each round of the tournament.

  • Winners will receive their winnings via the same vehicle they used to make payment.  For instance, if you paid with Venmo, you will receive your payment via Venmo.
