Out of the 8.15 million brackets submitted in ESPN's NCAA Tournament Bracket Challenge, the entry atop the rankings after Louisville won the national championship on Monday night was titled "Lennay Kekua's entry."

The best bracket submitted on Yahoo! Sports, created by username BadgerBoi 3, was very similar to the "Lennay Kekua's entry" but had one more incorrect pick (Florida Gulf Coast).

ESPN.com user CraigGilmore created the bracket and entry name -- a reference to the non-existent girlfriend of former Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o -- that won the challenge and a $10,000 Best Buy gift card.

CraigGilmore finished 2,080,995 spots above President Barack Obama in the rankings of the Tournament Challenge, who only picked one of the Final Four teams correctly. The President did tap Louisville to reach the national championship game but thought that Rick Pitino's team would lose to Indiana.

With a bracket closer to Kekua than Obama, ESPN analyst Dick Vitale nailed 96.3% of the picks in his bracket at ESPN.com, including correctly predicting Louisville to win it all. After 34 years broadcasting college basketball for ESPN, Vitale worked the live Final Four broadcast for the first time this year.

How did your bracket stack up?

According to DePaul University math professor Jay Bergen, the odds of filling out a perfect bracket are more than nine quintillion to 1. Apparently, a bracket may also benefit from being filled out by a non-existent person.
