After a placid first two days of the NCAA Tournament, the first big upset came on Saturday as Wisconsin beat East Region No. 1 seed and defending national champion Villanova 65-62 in Buffalo, N.Y.
ESPN said previously that 18,797,085 brackets were filled out in its annual online challenge. After Nova’s defeat, the number of perfect brackets could be counted with your fingers.
Never miss a local story.
That is .000048 percent.
And it is stark change from roughly 24 hours earlier.
A lot of people were lamenting their broken brackets after Wisconsin won. Well, except for Badgers fans.
