Only 5.6 percent picked Harvard upset
By ESPN.com staff
Just 5.6 percent of the 8.15 million Tournament Challenge brackets picked 14-seed Harvard to beat 3-seed New Mexico. The Crimson were the second-most-picked 14-seed to win (Davidson, which gave Marquette a scare, was picked in 14.3 percent of brackets). Meanwhile, New Mexico had been picked to reach the Sweet 16 in 19 percent of brackets and the Final Four in 9.1 percent of brackets.
With that result, the number of perfect brackets went from 26,300 (after the Missouri-Colorado State game) to 1,339.
