Bracketmatrix.com has examined every bracketology published for 2018, and out of almost 200, my score of 361 came in first place. The score of 361 is the second-highest ever recorded in the 13 year history of the matrix.
The scores are counted as follows: Three points for a correct team in the field, three points for having that team on the correct seed line, and one point for having a team within one spot of the correct seed line. I finished with 67 of the 68 correct teams, placing 48 on the correct seed line, and 16 one away.
It was not a solo victory though, my second all-time score of 361 was actually part of a four way tie for first, which has never happened in the history of the matrix. The other three sites are: 131sports.com, gadepool.com, and msportsfans.org.
We each had four “misses” a miss is defined as having a team out that was in, or having a team two or more spots away from their actual seed line. All four of us had Syracuse out (they ended in), Providence as an eight seed (they ended as a ten), Creighton as a ten seed (they ended as an eight), and three of us had West Virginia as a three seed (they ended as a five). MSportsFans’ fourth miss was having UCLA as a nine seed (they ended as an eleven).
ESPN’s Joe Lunardi game in 75th place, and CBS’s Jerry Palm came in 80th place.
