How do delete or insert values in another cell based on validation selction in adjacent cell

Okay here is where I am at:

My friend and I are trying to creat a NCAA basket ball bracket in excel.  I am using validation dropdown lists to popolate the cells and then a second worksheet to create a new validation list for the next round based on what was selected previously.   This works great but I want to add the additional functionality that if they select someone in round of 32 then select the same team in the sweet 16 to win but decided that the team would actually lose in the previous round that any rounds after that would clear the name since it was selected to lose prior to that.   I am not sure if there is a way through VBA or someother method to make this happen.

I have attached my spreadsheet for reference.  

Thanks!

Yes , you are totally correct , what do you want the VBA to do for you ?
you stated in yr Validation lists that each cell from [Round of 32] is taking the Value from [Field of 64] and [Sweet 16] is taking from [Field of 64] so on .... then you will never find a previously lost team in the next Fields or round ever :) very logic!

Again , what VBA should do here ?

Thanks

I will work with what you gave me today and back with you on the results.  It may be tonight before I can run it but I am excited to give it a try and I will make the suggested change to the champion.  

Wellous:
I want the list to narrow each time to make sure they only select from teams that are available.  However the could select say Arizona in round of 32, and then again in sweet 16 but if they go back and change round of 32 to Utah I want it to delete Arizona from round of 16 since it is no longer a choice.  Does that make since?

Thanks again for the responses I will get going on this.  After all the tournament is right around the corner!
