Posted by LeeUPDATE 3: 3/11/2011 was missing from the data. The archive has been corrected. It was also renamed to reflect that it contains all games through 3/12 and not 3/13.
UPDATE 2: It turns out that I was incorrectly parsing boxscores where the teams had a seed number in front of their name, leading to this being interpreted as "UNK" when in fact, these are incredibly important games (thanks, Rob). I have fixed this and uploaded new data. Please re-download the data. The links below have been corrected to point at the new data as well.
UPDATE: Thanks to the keen observation of one of our contestants (thanks, Scott), we've updated the data as the boxscore format we were crawling changed starting 3/10. The link below has been updated to the new data.
Today is Selection Sunday, when we will find out who is playing in this year's NCAA tournament. This also means that all the conferences have completed their games and it is time to release the data. Full contest details are available here.
Please download these two files:
There are two files within the data archive: Players.tsv and Games.tsv.
