NEW YORK -- I'm a day late getting to the latest pool update -- flying back from Minneapolis, then doing the Regional Breakdowns for the Sweet 16 got in the way -- but want to congratulate the Fab Four in the lead of our 1,091-bracket competition. Chris Paul and Rashad McCants (the first two from the right) also say congrats.
There's a rep from each region of the dance with 57 points in the standings:
• Bruce Kahl (Baltimore, Md.)
• Tucker Burgess (South Carolina Upstate)
• Bryan Leland (Ohio Northern '07)
• Josh Billington (Kirksville [Mo.] Senior HIgh '10)
Friend me on Facebook if you're near the lead. Your blogger is 12 points off the pace, with 45 ... which also means I'm in 584th place. It's been a bad year. (My mother, however, is 21st overall with 53 points. She read the T-Will story and has Louisville winning it all.)
