Congrats to Matt and Patrick, all the other pool winners, and the UConn Huskies! Check out the pool website for complete standings - http://peterfrench.hoops.sportsfan.com/.
At the end of the day, the pool raised over $5,000 for Peter's foundation. An enormous thank you to everyone who participated in the pool, helped recruit people, or simply supported the cause. We hope you'll all consider participating in March 2015, when the madness begins all over again!
