Tournament Challenge Winner

By Benjy Lipsman in News on Apr 6, 2010 3:40PM

On Monday night, we wanted Butler Bulldogs put up an incredible fight against the Duke Blue Devils, with Duke escaping with a 61-59 victory to claim the NCAA Men's Basketball title and capping one of the craziest, most entertaining tournaments ever. Taking the title in the Chicagoist Tournament Challenge is K. Oser's "crow930us" entry. His bracket accumulated 1,310 points, placing in the 99.9th percentile of all entries in the ESPN Tournament Challenge. Congrats! Contact me at benjy(at)chicagoist(dot)com to claim your prize.

Yours truly finished 35th in the Chicagoist pool, while editor-in-chief Marcus Gilmer placed 51st -- still in the top half, but not high enough to make his "Better than Benjy" entry a reality. We were feeling a little embarrassed by our showing until we saw Dicky V's bracket. Some expert he is -- he'd have barely cracked the top 100 in our pool.
