Let’s not waste any time. I just finished filling out two brackets for the Big Dance. I chose Kansas to beat Duke in one bracket and Duke to defeat Syracuse in the other. The rationale there was to take the favorite in one bracket and a relative long shot in the other.
POST TOURNEY RESULT: My strategy worked out perfectly this year. 11 out of 30 selected Kansas in my pool and only 2, including me, chose Duke to win it all. I ended up beating other person who selected Duke by a small margin and ended up taking First Place!!! First time in five years I pulled that off.
I look forward to defending my crown next year.
