Top 10 Facts That Will Help You Win Your Bracket Pool
The NCAA Tournament is more than just a basketball championship. It's a chance for otherwise unremarkable people like you or me to grab a slice of intraoffice glory and maybe win 20 bucks in a bracket pool. But unless you get paid to watch college basketball, you probably haven't seen enough games to make fully educated decisions for every matchup.
