In a surprising turn of events, Mike’s first bracket win came with a strategy borne out of limited exposure to college games this year. By banking on UConn’s prowess and favoring Power 5 teams along with the Big East, he crafted a winning formula. Notably, Mike’s faith in Purdue, particularly their dominant 7-4 center, proved instrumental in his success. His Final 4 picks included UCONN, Purdue, Arizona, and Kentucky, the last two exited early. He did not chose any of the big upsets, sticking with past winners.  

Mike’s deep-rooted connection to Michigan runs through generations, with ties to legendary figures like Coach Bo Schembechler and 2 family members who played for Michigan Basketball..   His 3 minute Bracket picking with no upsets chosen resulted in his win. Congrats Mike and enjoy a week in paradise at Runaway Bay, on Anna Maria Island Florida!
