Syracuse Resident Leads ESPN’s Tournament Challenge
Three weeks ago, you along with many other sports fans felt like they had the perfect bracket. The bracket that was going to lead you to cash in on your office pool, and reward you the bragging rights for a full 12 months over your co-workers. For almost all of us, that's not going to the case this year. This year's Final four includes just one #1 seed (North Carolina), two #2 seeds (Villanova and Oklahoma) and the Final Four's first ever 10 seed (Syracuse). Only 1140 entries (.009%) of the over 13 million ESPN Tournament Challenge brackets correctly predicted this year's Final Four.
