Ladies and gentlemen, we have officially crowned a new champion. The worst thing about it is, not only does he know more about college hoops than you, but he’s also probably a better golfer than you as well.
Our first round champion picked 11 out of the sweet 16 correctly, which is impressive considering the unpredictability of opening weekend. In doing so, he edged out recent birthday boy and defending champion, Heavy D, by a single point, which are honors D will likely get back from him on the poker table sometime soon.
Without further ado, I proudly present your first round champion, recent newlywed and overall decent fella…. Zbignu, with a total of 39 points. Oregon pushed him over the top by a smidge, which I guess means he’ll be wearing his green Nikes to work today.
Now on to our second round of the tournament and again, your prize, other than getting to stand proudly on the Olympic pedestal next to Zbignu, is your own personal copy of Bobby Knight’s “The Power of Negative Thinking.”
This round will run similar to last except I now need you to pick the winners of the next twelve games.
Here’s the remaining bracket:
