No more perfect NCAA tournament brackets left
Millions of brackets filled out, and not a single one in Yahoo Sports' Tourney Pick'em game made it out of the first round unscathed.
Of those millions, CharlieM's Choice Bracket and My Impressive Bracket were the last two standing. Until Iowa – Game 27 of the tournament – took them out by beating Davidson 83-52.
Last year, one bracket made it through Round 1 (yeah, we're calling it Round 1) perfect. In fact, Brad Binder went 36-for-36 before getting tripped up.
The biggest bracket buster this year – UAB, the 14-seed in the South Region, which knocked off Iowa State early Thursday. A full 96 percent of Yahoo users picked Iowa St. to advance.
Even after two more upsets, including another victory by a 14-seed (Georgia St.), a little over 2,600 perfect brackets remained. But by the end of Day 1 (and after another semi-upset, No. 10 Ohio St. over No. 7 VCU), the number of perfect brackets was down to 65.
By mid-afternoon Friday, that number whittled down to three – impreza, My Impressive Bracket and CharlieM's Choice Bracket.
Then came Iowa, and then there were none.
