Richard Coletta comes out ahead of Maceo Baston for fourth place on the tiebreaker (60 possessions in the title game; Richard guessed 68 and Maceo 69). I didn't put in any of the later tiebreaker steps since they weren't needed for the top few spots, so if people further down had the same tiebreaker pick they may not be in strictly correct order.

Selecting Connecticut was worth a whopping 51 points, which is a record in the contest era (VCU's First Four-to-Final Four run netted 50.5 a few years back; only Villanova's title in 1985 would beat it at 57). Kentucky was worth 44, which is also one of the top scores ever (tied for 3rd in the contest era with Butler 2011, tied for 6th in the 64+-team era). Fueled by those two high scores, a perfect set of picks (the 16 highest scoring teams) would net a total of 291.5 points.

Thanks for playing, everyone.
