In this step, you can start filling in your Quarter finalists. If you already have games added to your game schedule, you can select the games below and it will auto-populate the name fields. You can fill in each team's rank coming in to the playoffs and series record if you have that data. 


In the Notes field, you can add game notes. For example, "Team A is leading series 2-0" or "Team B Wins Series" etc.
