OHIO VALLEY — The annual NCAA March Matchup Bracket (one of the few names not yet copyrighted by collegiate sport’s governing body) is in today’s newspaper.
A lucky reader could walk away with $200 if they can correctly predict the winning team. There’s a tiebreaker in the event more than one reader predicts the winner. And yes, there will be a bunch of Kentucky Wildcat picks and probably even a few West Virginia Mountaineer picks, too. True fans will sometimes vote their heart. Last year no one in the three counties, Gallia, Meigs and Mason, correctly predicted the Villanova Wildcats to take home the crown.
