Purdue Will Win the NCAA Tournament…

Your 2010 NCAA Tournament Champions?

Nearly everyone I know who has filled out a bracket for this year’s NCAA tournament is either completely out of the running or barely hanging on by a thread.  Remarkably, Alex Herman, a 17-year-old Chicago resident, has picked every game of the tournament correctly so far.  And, we’re not talking about a tournament that has gone according to the script.  There have been some major upsets.  How has he done it?  He has autism and has a wizard like grasp of statistics.   Even though his remaining picks would leave me high and dry (I have Syracuse winning the whole thing, and he has Purdue), I can’t help but pull for him.  It would be a magical story if he could continue on this streak.  How can you pull against magic?

BTW – His Final Four? Tennessee, Kansas State, Kentucky, Purdue

His finals match up? Kansas State vs. Purdue

His National Champion? Purdue

You can see a video of Alex here.
