How the Person Who Knows Nothing About Basketball Won the Office Pool

The person in our office who knows the least about basketball just won the office pool!


And before you write it off, thinking I picked my bracket based on mascots or uniform colors, I'll tell you what I did.  I did some research, using a bracket predictor tool-- (and no, this isn't a commercial for Allstate.. it's just a tool I found the day we filled out brackets... and the Mayhem tweet above was one that Mason found particularly annoying, so I felt the need to include it too!)


And yes, I've tried things like this before and failed miserably.  In the past, I used a blind predictor and chose strictly based on stats.   THIS TIME, I used stats to make my choices... but name recognitition... and remembering that North Carolina had won before... helped me make my final choices.

In the end, it came down to a co-worker who lives, eats, sleeps, breathes basketball and went with Gonzaga because of specific players... and me, who took a shot at the end of my bracket.

My shot went in.
