And the basketball comes to its final rest for this round of March Madness (next to a broken Frisbee no less).
So sorry for the slow posting of the final results. We were so shocked by the final 30 seconds of play in the championship game that it took all day to recover. And how appropriate, a buzzer-beating shot to win the tournament! Exciting to the very end.
Congratulations to Villinova and to the winners of the Robinson Noble March Madness pool. The final rankings can be found here.
The top five in our pool (including Robinson Noble staff) were:
1 – Wow, Mylee moves up from 5th place yesterday to win the whole shebang. Got to love Mylee’s moves!
2 – and seemly out of nowhere, Kulchin Drilling finishs in 2nd. Ole Kulchin was in 7th place yesterday.
3 – and no one in their wildest dreams would have picked BGC to finish in 3rd overall place (from personal knowledge, I know BGC thinks basketball is played on a field with an oval shaped ball). BGC moved all the way up from 14th place.
4 – My Dog Picked This, after a commanding lead much of the tournament, fell from 1st to 4th after his champion couldn’t quite finish it off (bet his dog didn’t see that coming!),
5 – and finally, in 5th place is bearbasket. Who’s that you say? Had this basket of bears been ever mentioned on the leader board before? No. Bearbasket moved all the way up from 24th place to finish in the top five. Amazing!
