The second part of round 1 was not as kind, as I only went 11-5 in the 16 games on Friday. The pursuit of perfection for me ended, fittingly, at 18-0. My first wrong pick occurred when Drake lost on a last-second shot.
That particular game killed me, as Western Kentucky hit a ridiculous last-second three to win it. I had Drake advancing to the Sweet 16, so that part of the bracket was a little busted.
The same goes for Clemson’s loss to Villanova, as I had them soaring to the Sweet 16 as well. Again, the bracket is a little busted. But, all of my Elite 8 teams are still intact.
