MSL Bracket Challenge Winners!

By Mercury Staff

Louisville beat Michigan in an NCAA Championship game for the ages on Monday night. It also marked the end of our inaugural Mercury Sports Live Bracket Challenge.

The top six finishers all picked Louisville to win it all, but it was Steve (not sports staffer Steve Moore) who finished on top with 123 points.

Finishing second was "Kurthi's Fantastic Bracket" (114 points) and third was "Jeffrey's Notable Bracket" (112 points).

All three of those readers will win $20 American Express Gift Cards from The Mercury.

If you are any of those three, please email Steve Moore at with your name, address and phone number.

Thanks for playing!
