The Promotion Entities shall not be responsible for incorrect or inaccurate entry information whether
caused by Internet users or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the
Promotion or by any technical or human error that may occur in the processing of the entries in the
Promotion. The Promotion Entities assume no responsibility or liability for any error, omission,
interruption, deletion, theft or destruction, or unauthorized access to, or alteration of entries. NOTE:
Participation must be by the participant and only as directed in these Official Rules. Participation by any
other individual or any entity, and/or originating at any website or other platform, including but not
limited to commercial promotion subscription notification and/or entering service sites, will be declared
invalid and disqualified for this Promotion. The use of any device to automate the entry process is
prohibited and will lead to disqualification.
In the event of a dispute over the identity of an entrant, entry will be deemed completed by the authorized
account holder of the email address provided at time of registration. “Authorized account holder” is
defined as the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet access provider, on-line
service provider, wireless carrier, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is
responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address.
If applicable, the ability to participate via SMS Mobile Messaging is designed to work with all major
domestic wireless carriers but Sponsor makes no guarantee that any particular wireless carrier’s network
will be compatible with and/or permit participation in the Promotion via SMS Mobile Messaging.
Sponsor, in its sole discretion and/or to comply with a particular wireless carrier’s requirements, may
revise the list of participating wireless carriers at any time without notice. To participate via SMS Mobile
Messaging, an entrant’s mobile phone must be capable of sending and receiving text messages. Message
and data rates may apply to all text messages sent and received even if the attempted entry is not
successfully transmitted for any reason.
If due to technical, production or other errors, more prizes/offers are claimed than intended, the intended
prize/offer will be awarded in a random drawing from all those submitting purportedly valid claims. No
more than the number of prizes/offers set forth in these Official Rules will be awarded. ALL
POTENTIAL WINNING PLAYS ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR, WHOSE
DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING. A “SCREEN SHOT” IS NOT PROOF OR EVIDENCE OF
A WINNING PLAY AND/OR PRIZE/OFFER. A PARTICIPANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY
PRIZE/OFFER, EVEN IF THE PLATFORM SHOULD SO INDICATE, UNLESS AND UNTIL SAID
PARTICIPANT’S ELIGIBILITY AND THE POTENTIAL WINNING PLAY HAVE BEEN VERIFIED
AND SAID PARTICIPANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE.
SPONSOR WILL NOT ACCEPT SCREEN SHOTS OR OTHER EVIDENCE OF WINNING IN LIEU
OF ITS VALIDATION PROCESS. ANY PLAY THAT OCCURS AFTER THE SYSTEM HAS
FAILED FOR ANY REASON IS DEEMED A DEFECTIVE PLAY AND IS VOID AND WILL NOT
BE HONORED. The submission of a prize/offer claim is solely the responsibility of the participant.
PRIZES/OFFERS/ODDS:
At the conclusion of the Sweepstakes Period, the following Grand Prize will be awarded with a
random winner selection from all entries –
One (1): One (1) Grand Prize consisting of Two (2) all-session passes to the Big 12 Conference
Tournament in Kansas City; One (1) $900 Visa Gift Card for hotel accommodations of winners
choosing; One (1) $150 Cy’s Locker Room gift card. (ARV $2,500)
UNCLAIMED/UNREDEEMED PRIZES WILL NOT BE AWARDED. Odds of winning a prize
depend on the total number of eligible plays and the time and date upon which they are entered. There
is no guarantee that all prizes will be awarded.
All potential winners are subject to verification by Sponsor. An Entrant is not a winner of any prize,
even if notified of being a winner unless and until the Entrant’s eligibility has been verified. Potential
winners must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and eligibility
is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. Each potential winner will be notified by email or
phone after selection. A potential winner is disqualified and forfeits the prize if the potential winner:
1) cannot be contacted using the information provided after a reasonable effort has been exerted based
on the information provided; 2) fails to comply with these Official Rules; 3) fails to respond to
Sponsor’s attempt to notify the potential winner of being selected within 2 business days; 4) fails to
sign and return the Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability and Publicity Release (“Release”) within the
required time period (if applicable—time period will be provided with the Release); 5) is unable or
unwilling to accept the prize as stated; 6) cannot be verified as eligible for any other reason; or 7) if
the prize, the prize notification, or the Release is returned as undeliverable or an error or
undeliverable “bounce back” message occurs, even if the message is ultimately delivered to the
recipient. In the event that a prize winner is disqualified for any reason, the foregoing process will be
repeated with a randomly selected potential winner from the pool of remaining entries until the prize
is awarded or until 4 attempts have been made to award the prize and each attempt has failed. Once
Sponsor determines that a potential winner is eligible, the prize will be awarded within ten (10) days.
GENERAL PRIZE/OFFER CONDITIONS: No cash alternative or prize substitutions will be allowed,
except Sponsor reserves the right to substitute prize(s) of comparable value if a prize listed is unavailable
for any reason. Prize winners shall be solely responsible for all federal, state and/or local taxes, and the
reporting consequences thereof, and for any other fees or costs associated with the applicable prize. Any
potential winner of a prize valued at $600 or more must execute an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability
Release, and (where imposing such condition is legal) a Publicity Release (collectively, “Prize Claim
Documents”). If winner fails or refuses to sign and return all Prize Claim Documents within five (5) days
of prize notification (or a shorter time if required by exigencies), winner may be disqualified and an
alternate winner may be selected.
GENERAL: Acceptance of a prize/offer constitutes prize/offer winner’s permission for Sponsor and its
designees to use prize/offer winner’s name, photograph, likeness, voice, biographical information,
statements and address (city and state) for advertising and/or publicity purposes worldwide and in all
forms of media now known or hereafter developed, in perpetuity, without further compensation. Entrants

intent to disrupt or undermine the legitimate operation of the Promotion, or to annoy, abuse, threaten or
harass any other person, and Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages and other remedies from any
such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. No mechanically reproduced, illegible, incomplete,
forged, software-generated or other automated multiple entries will be accepted. Sponsor reserves the
right to modify, extend, suspend, or terminate the Promotion if it determines, in its sole discretion, that
the Promotion is technically impaired or corrupted or that fraud or technical problems, failures or
malfunctions or other causes beyond Sponsor’s control have destroyed or severely undermined or to any
degree impaired the integrity, administration, security, proper play and/or feasibility of the Promotion as
contemplated herein. In the event Sponsor is prevented from awarding prizes/offers or continuing with the
Promotion as contemplated herein by any event beyond its control, Sponsor shall have the right to
modify, suspend, or terminate the Promotion. These Official Rules cannot be modified or amended in any
way except in a written document issued by a duly authorized representative of Sponsor. The invalidity or
unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of
any other provision. In the event that any provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable
or illegal, these Official Rules shall otherwise remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with
their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein.
