Quote of the day
"Somebody told me we were Cinderellas, and I was like, no, we're UConn. This is what we do. We are born for this. We're bred to cut down nets. We're not chasing championships. Championships are chasing us." -- UConn basketball coach Kevin Ollie
Apparently, defense can win basketball championships as well as football. Kentucky managed to score only 54, their lowest point total of the season.
Kudos to jasonfhall, who repeated as the Market Madness Contest champion by 98 points, having not only Connecticut and Kentucky as longs, but also the #7 seeds, the #8 seeds, and the AAC basket. He had only two negative scores on his entire scorecard, both on the long side. He’s also my son – so he doesn’t qualify for the financial prize, which will roll down to the runner-up. The winning score without basket units was by lfrit2. All prize winners will be notified by email in the next week or so.
The best possible score this year would have been G$1701. That’s a high total, with 420 bonus points for UConn (six times 70) and 240 from Kentucky. In addition to the six longs of the final two teams (team, seed basket, and conference basket for each), longs included two #11 seeds (Tennessee and Dayton) plus the #11 seed basket.

Well I didn't get dead last, so that's good. Next year I know to do the opposite.
