- March Madness April 7
If your March Madness bracket ended with Connecticut, take a bow: The Huskies beat the University of Kentucky, 60-54, to win their second NCAA men's basketball title in four years. (UConn missed last year's tournament due to academic shortcomings.) The chances are, of course, that Connecticut was not penciled into your winning slot in the bracket; the Huskies were a seven seed, only slightly more favored to win than eight-seeded Kentucky — the lowest combinations of seeds in the final since 1985, when the NCAA expanded the tournament to 64 teams.
Of course, for every winning team, there's a losing one. And the iconic photo from the Kentucky side seems to be... Drake? Madness indeed. --Peter Weber
