Cutting down the nets on AOA NCAA Tournament Pool IV

aoa_ncaa_tournament_pool_iv_winning_bracket.pngCongrats to Jenna, the winner of AOA NCAA Tournament Pool IV. Here's her winning bracket.

Jenna correctly picked 44 out of 63 tournament games, which tied for second the highest number of correctly picked games in the pool. And she had three of the final four teams correctly picked -- Duke, Wisconsin, and Kentucky. Jenna piled up 137 points for her picks, eight more than second-place finisher Chuck.

For her sage selections, Jenna wins a Stewart's gift card.

Coming into this year's tournament Kentucky was the heavy favorite. And the AOA pool reflected that -- almost 3/4 of the brackets in the pool had UK tabbed as the winner. Three people of 33 had Duke picked as the winner. And one person had Wisconsin. (Also: One person picked UAlbany.)

After the jump, the top 10 from this year's pool. Thanks to everyone who played.

Woot! Thanks guys. I have a weird Rainman thing with picking March Madness winners. I definitely have never watched a basketball game before.
