By Benjy Lipsman in News on Apr 7, 2015 3:15PM


With Duke's 68-63 victory over Wisconsin, we can now crown the champion of the Chicagoist NCAA Tournament Challenge. Out of 105 entries filled out, janetlop's bracket bested them all! Our winner totaled 1450 points and ranked in the 99th percentile of all ESPN Tournament Challenge entries in addition to winning our pool. Congrats! Email benjy[at]chicagoist[dot]com to claim your prize.

And who topped the millions of entries in the ESPN Tournament Challenge overall? Sam Holtz, a 12-year old from suburban Lake Zurich had the best bracket in the nation. The winner gets a $20,000 Best Buy gift card and trip to Hawaii for the 2015 Maui Invitational...but has to be 18 to win. So, does the middle schooler end up with little more than bragging rights?
