From NBC Chicago:
An autistic teenager from the Chicago area has dome something almost impossible. Nearly 48 games into an upset-filled NCAA tournament, 17-year-old Alex Mermann is perfect.
“It’s amazing,” he says. Truly.
The teenager predicted that Northern Iowa would beat the Kansas Jayhawks. He picked Ohio to knock off Georgetown. And Cornell to knock off Wisconsin.
In fact, he picked every game through the first two rounds correctly. The odds of anybody doing that? One in 13,460,000 according to BookofOdds.com. It’s easier to win the lottery. Twice.
