Welcome to championship week!

Sixteen GIFs entered this tournament, but only four remain. This week will bring the BC Interruption GIF of the Year tournament to a close — the semifinals drop today and Tuesday, the finals vote takes place on Wednesday, and our annual Best Of The Best vote will be on Thursday.

Our final quarterfinal last week saw Send It In Jerome advance on the strength of a 61-39 win over Stony Brook Bound. We’ll see Jerome Robinson’s semifinal tomorrow. But for now, we’ve got two other entries to decide between.

Smith’s Trickery To White

Jeff Smith’s flea-flicker dime to Kobay White had an extremely close battle to make it to the semifinals. That matchup, a 51-49 win over Hey We Beat Duke, earned Smith and White a spot in the semifinals. Will they have enough support to advance to Wednesday’s finals?

Breaking Ankles

Sam Apuzzo was always going to be a tough out in this tournament, and her game-winning goal that embarrassed Maryland rolled into the semifinals with a 79-21 win over Watts Is Electric. She’ll need another strong day to make it to the finals.

Here’s the updated bracket:

It’s championship week! Today’s winner will advance to the finals on Wedneday. You have until 8:30am on Tuesday to cast your ballot!
