Chicagoist Tournament Challenge Winner

By Benjy Lipsman in News on Apr 5, 2011 2:35PM

While we had to wait and see whether Butler could complete its Cinderella run or whether UConn could close out an incredible postseason streak, the winner of the 2011 Chicago Tournament Challenge was never in doubt as not one competitor had either Butler or UConn winning the NCAA Championship. Now that UConn has cut down the nets, we can officially declare our winner.

And our winner for 2011 is c. figgins' BSY NATION entry! With 910 total points, the winning entry in our pool of 123 entries also placed in the 99.8th percentile of almost 6 million entries overall. Quite a feat! Finishing just 10 points back was J. Grahn's jennifer-ann9 1 entry, so the top two were unchanged from last week's update. Meanwhile, your truly limped in with a 44th place finish this year... and we were helped tremendously by the chaos of the Final Four.

So, c. figgins, to claim your prize please email me at benjy[AT]chicagoist[dot]com. We hear that Chuck is putting together quite the prize package!
