Starpower’s Gone Mad

As you know, I have a passion for high performance audio and video systems. What you may not know, is I also have a huge passion for basketball. This is my favorite time of the year. I know I can pick the regional championship teams, can you?

Whether you have a strategy or not, you can still enter! With a purchase of at least $5,000, you can pick your teams. If you are correct, you will get your purchase for FREE. Here are some popular strategies for picking your bracket:

Hot or Not?

People often look at a team’s momentum when choosing their bracket. Teams that have won their conference tournament before entering post season have been contenders in the National Championship.  The #4 seed, Michigan State, beat out Michigan for the Big Ten Conference Championship and is now an east region favorite.  The overall #1 seed, Florida, hasn’t lost a game since December and is favored to be this year’s National Champions.


Unlike the NBA, the college game still belongs to the coaches. Even if you haven’t watched college hoops, you’re likely still familiar with Coach K, Rick Pitino, John Calipari and Jim Boeheim. When it comes time to fill out your bracket, trust in the top coaches as they always find a way to put their teams in a position to win big games.


Top basketball analysts use experience as a strategy for picking their bracket this time of the year. Some fill out their brackets based on the presence of veteran players on the competing teams. Florida’s head coach Billy Donovan entrusts the ball to his veteran players Scottie Wilbekin, Casey Prather and Patrick Young. On the other hand, the #8 seed, Kentucky, is led by extraordinarily talented freshmen. Analysts predict they will make a run in the 2014 NCAA tournament.


One thing that makes basketball so entertaining is the fact that one player can elevate a team. History tells us that the best players win the biggest games. As a Syracuse freshman, Carmelo Anthony led his team to a National Championship averaging 22.2ppg and 10rpg. A few standout players to watch in the tournament this year are Duke’s Jabari Parker, Oklahoma State’s Marcus Smart, Louisville’s Russ Smith and Michigan State’s Gary Harris.

Starpower Gives Purchase To Customers Who Pick The Final Four Teams With NCAA Promotion

DALLAS, TEXAS, March 12, 2014 – Starpower Home Entertainment Systems, Inc. (“Starpower”) is offering to pay for customer purchases of $5,000 or more to anyone who can accurately pick the final four basketball teams in the 2014 NCAA championship as well as qualify under the promotion rules. Prior purchases are not eligible and customers participating must complete an agreement with Starpower by March 19th designating the teams of choice. The Final Four Offer begins on March 10, 2014. The NCAA promotion purchases must be made between March 10 and March 19, 2014. The purchases are non-cancellable and must be paid in full no later than March 19, 2014. Failure to make payment in full and select Final Four picks by March 19, 2014, will disqualify entries.

“This is a great opportunity, especially for those who are already in the market to purchase quality audio, video, custom leather, or perhaps put in a new media room,” said David Pidgeon, CEO of Starpower. “I know it’s crazy, but we could potentially give back a million dollars to customers who pick the exact final four teams. I think I can pick the final four. I’m just wondering if there are customers out there who think they can pick them too.”

The dynamic LED difference.
