The odds of picking a perfect bracket for the entire NCAA men’s basketball tournament are somewhere around 9.2 quintillion to one. In other words, a perfect bracket is a borderline impossible feat. Nevertheless, one Columbus man has gotten further than most.

Nigl shattered the previous record of 39 correct picks in a row, correctly predicting every single game through the first two rounds of the 2019 NCAA tournament.
