Bracket Busters Skills Challenges

On March 15, 2K added 35 new Skill challenges in MyTeam. Each is part of the Bracket Busters promotion in NBA 2K23.

The 35 Skill challenges follow the theme of celebrating the NCAA Division I tournament, as each requires players to win a game against alumni from different schools. Win the game, and users will receive a 94 OVR Diamond featuring a player that went to that school. These games, by the way, are on All-Star difficulty with no team requirements. Because there are no team requirements, you can use any player you want, making this a relatively easy grind to complete, though it is going to take a while.

Here’s a look at the 35 schools and player rewards.
