HighSchoolQuarterback wins the CougCenter bracket challenge

New, 3 comments

Among the many people who picked Louisville, he/she (hey, we don't know!) did enough in the early rounds to eke out a victory by a solitary point.

USA TODAY Sports

The NCAA tournament came to an end on Monday, but I've been slammed this week with other responsibilities, so I'm a little late on posting these final results. Congratulations to HighSchoolQuarterback, who won the CougCenter bracket challenge by just one point thanks to correctly picking two of the Final Four teams - a feat accomplished by just five of the 97 entries.

HighSchoolQuarterback, you are now immortalized on our Contest Champions page.
