For March Madness neophytes, it's hard to know if our bracket predictions make any sense. But there's a new tool to determine if your choices are statistically likely to be correct. Sheldon Jacobson joins us to discuss his magical probability tool, and the crazy, what-are-the-odds victory of Harvard over New Mexico last night.
March Madness begins today, with the Illini tipping off Friday against Colorado. For public radio listeners, typically not a group enamored with sports, this is a tough time of year to keep up with conversations at work or school. Joining us for a quick primer on the storylines in this year's tournament is Mike Pesca, the sports reporter for NPR. He also weighs in on the Public Radio March Madness bracket (see link below) that went viral earlier this week.
