CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - An Ohio man has picked the correct outcome for all 48 of the games played so far in the 2019 NCAA men’s basketball tournament.
Out of tens of millions of brackets, Gregg Nigl is the only person to have a perfect bracket still standing for all major online bracket games, according to the NCAA.
“So wait, you’re saying I’m the first person to have ever done this?” Nigl asked when he was told about his bracket. “This is wild. I can’t even believe it.”
Nigl, a neuropsychologist from Columbus, submitted his unblemished bracket titled “center road” into the NCAA Bracket Challenge Game.
The 40-year-old Ohio resident picked Gonzaga over Duke in the championship game. Here’s a look at who he has left.
The odds of picking a perfect bracket have been estimated to be approximately 1 in 9.2 quintillion, a number far too large to comprehend. More precisely, the odds are 1 in 9,223,372,036,854,775,808.
