The 68 team tournament began on March 21. According to, by the end of the first day, only 25.6 percent of brackets remained correct.

As dozens of brackets for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament have been displayed around the newsroom for the past week, The Red Ledger’s sportswriters have accepted the fact that the chances of a perfect bracket are somewhere around 1 out of 9,223,372,036,854,775,808, or 9.2 quintillion.

Thus, the staff decided to try for something slightly more likely: to predict which teams will end up in the Final Four, and which team will ultimately become the champion of college basketball.
