"Preliminaries: Maryland/Washington-St.Louis/NC Central" - November 8

It is an honor and a privilege as the NC delegate to GSNN to welcome you to my neck of the woods, Raleigh, North Carolina, the mecca for college basketball (well, half an hour from it, actually) for a different kind of competition. This is Jeopardy!'s annual College Championship, hosted by North Carolina State. So far, Beth Cimini of Boston University is still in the race toward $100,000 and a berth in the next Tournament of Champions for a quarter-mill.

The second place winner is guaranteed at least $50,000 and third-place is ensured $25,000.

Semifinalists are guaranteed at least $10,000, while all tournament players are guaranteed $5000 for participating. Any and all monies, as always, depend on how far the player moves up the bracket.

Bring forth the next three!

MALISHA BUTTS
Durham, NC
Senior, NC Central
JAYANTH IYENGAR
Madison, WI
Junior, Washington-St. Louis
ALISON JENIK
New York City
Junior, Maryland

Jeopardy! categories: Panthers & Bobcats, Tom Hanks Movie Roles, US Cities, Word History, The Stars, Anagrammed Cabinet Departments.

Daily Double: $800 Panthers & Bobcats. Jayanth ($5200 over Alison's $3600 and Malisha's $1400) bets only $800. The clue: Y acts as the only vowel in the name of this wildcat, a bobcat relative. Jayanth's response: a shaking head. Correct response: What is a lynx? Jayanth has $4400.

End of round:
Malisha - $400
Jayanth - $4400
Alison - $3600

Double Jeopardy! categories: Cliffs Notes: Drama, Celebrity Alumni, He's a Rebel, Beauty & The Greek, Medical Prefixes & Suffixes, State "NC"

Daily Double #1: $800 Cliffs Notes: Drama. Jayanth ($1200 to Alison's $4400 and Malisha's $800) bets $800. The clue: Martha: "I'm drunk." Nick: "I'm confused." Honey: "I'm mousy." George: "I'm going to bed." Jayanth's response: "What is 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?'" Correct for $2000.

Daily Double #2: $1200 Medical Prefixes & Suffixes. Jayanth (tied with Malisha's $4400 to Alison's $8800) bets $1000. The clue: -sclerosis, as in "of an artery". Jayanth's response: "What is hardening?" Right for $5400.

End of round:
Malisha - $7600
Jayanth - $7400
Alison - $12,400

As a reminder, the winner comes back next week automatically, while the rest of the players must vie for four wild card slots.

Final Jeopardy! category: Continents. This continent has the lowest high point & the highest low point, less than a 7500' difference. Correct response: What is Australia

Jayanth's question: What is Australia? (RIGHT) Wager: $5600. Final score: $13,000.
Malisha's question: What is Europe? (WRONG) Wager: $5555. Final score: $2045.
Alison's question: What is Antarctica? (WRONG) Wager: $2400. Final score: $10,000.

Jayanth joins Beth in the semis, but don't look for his conservative play to get him any farther than that. In fact, based on the game play, should any of today's players make the final, I will be surprised.

Bracketology: So far, Christopher's dollar from yesterday is, pardon the pun, the ONLY thing in jeopardy. Malisha had better be careful, though, as Alison and Antonia are in prime position to lock two of the four wild cards.
