Ultimate Bucks Bracket Update

Our first four matchups are final, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Oscar Robertson, Junior Bridgeman and Vin Baker are advancing to the second round. Kareem and Oscar’s progression comes as no surprise, but Bridgeman just held off Brandon Jennings by a handful of votes when the tallies were combined, and Vin Baker produced our first big upset with a win over Brian Winters.

Among active polls, No. 2 seed Sidney Moncrief holds a dominant lead over Eric Murdock, Bob Lanier is in strong position in his matchup against Alvin Robertson, Ray Allen is well on his way to victory over Eric Bledsoe, and Sam Cassell is on track to upset Paul Pressey in a close one.
