Jim is the winner!

Jim has come from behind to claim the crown of our “Brother Bracket,” our college basketball postseason tournament competition.

Going into the championship college basketball game, Jim sat in third place, a mere five points away from first place. His only chance of winning was if the Kansas Jayhawks beat the Memphis Tigers in this past Monday’s game.

Yesterday, on national television, Kansas defeated Memphis, 75-68, in overtime.

Because of this, Jim gains 32 whopping points, sending him into first place with 124 points. Chris finished second with 97 points, and Levi ended up in third with 94 points.

“Amazing! Surprising!” Jim exclaimed upon finding out that he won the “Brother Bracket.” “True ignorance wins the day!”

And what kind of research and strategy did Jim have in making his college basketball picks at the beginning? “Zippo,” Jim answered.

Jim used simple name recognition and hunches, and, of course, luck, to claim the title.

“College basketball? Isn’t that the game where you kick the ball between the goal posts?” Jim joked around.

What words of advice does Jim have for future bracket challengers?

“Turn your brain off … completely.”

“Points” means the amount of points the players have so far. “Possible” means the amount of overall points the player may score by the end of the tournament.

Here are the final brackets for this season. “O” means that the team is out, so that team cannot score a brother any more points.
