Updated March Madness Bracket

WAKEFIELD — The 2nd annual Wakefield Daily Item March Madness Bracket Contest is down to two contestants after a wild, Sweet 16 and Elite 8 weekend that saw No. 1 seeds Houston and Alabama go down – two of the most popular picks to make the Final Four and win the championship.

Only five contestants correctly predicted one of the Final Four teams, which include No. 9 Florida Atlantic, No. 5 San Diego State, No. 5 Miami and No. 4 UConn.

Kevin Geaney, Brooke Giannattasio, Dave Giannattasio and John Hourihan all picked UConn to make it to Houston. Ali Potts correctly predicted Miami to make the Final Four, but did not have them advancing to the championship game.

Hourihan currently leads the way with 65 points, which will be his final score as he had Houston beating UConn in the Final Four.

Geaney and Brooke Giannattasio are tied for 2nd with 63 points, however, Giannattasio picked UConn to make it to the championship game, which would give her an additional 16 points. Her bracket is the only one left of the 32 entries that can still earn points. No contestant’s pick to win the National title is still in the tournament.

This means that if Miami beats UConn on Saturday at 8:49 p.m. on CBS, Hourihan will win, but if UConn beats Miami, then Brooke Giannattasio will be the winner.

One of the two will be awarded a grand prize of $200 courtesy of Designer Lawn Sprinkler Services.

Florida Atlantic vs. San Diego State will precede the UConn-Miami game with the Aztecs and Owls tipping off on Saturday night, 6:09 p.m. on CBS.
