It's now or never time! The shot clock is winding down on the Opening Round of Downtown Madness 2012: Downtown vs. Crosstown. Does your team have one last good run in them to finish out strong?

Here are the Downtown Madness voting results thru Monday, March 12 at 10:30AM (actual voting totals will be released after Round 1 is completed on Monday, March 12 at 5PM):

If you have not done so already NOW IS THE TIME TO VOTE! This is where legends are made and champions are born! If you want to see your teams continue dancing into the second round, lace up the sneakers, get off the bench and VOTE NOW!

Round 1 voting concludes TODAY at 5PM.

As we speak, there are a couple of Opening Round match-ups that are extremely tight (separated by less than 30 votes each). Though unprecedented, in the event of a tie in any of the Round 1 match-ups, we will go to OVERTIME! If that should become necessary, we will make an announcement tonight at 5:30PM. We will then launch a new Round 1 OVERTIME Voting Form (for the tied competitors only) beginning tonight at 7PM and reopen the voting (meaning everyone who has voted previously can vote again). Round 1 OVERTIME voting would close Wednesday morning at 10AM. Stay tuned!
