      Warren Buffett bracket challenge has a $100,000 winner -- a factory worker from West Virginia.

      Warren Buffett's NCAA bracket challenge has a winner.

      Kansas, Purdue plan to make for a stylish Sweet 16 matchup

      Two national player of the year front-runners, Frank Mason III of Kansas and Caleb Swanigan of Purdue, will lead their teams against each other in the Midwest Regional semifinals on Thursday night. In many ways, they're a microcosm of their teams. Mason is the granite-tough point guard whose ability to get up and down the floor in a blink has caused nightmares for the rest of the Big 12 the past four years. Swanigan is the 6-foot-9, 250-pound bruiser whose ability to dominate the post helped the Boilermakers dominate the Big Ten. The Jayhawks are the essence of speed and shooting, Purdue the epitome of size and strength. "There is no doubt they're going to attack us with that match-up," Boilermakers
