A friend who is very into basketball helped me to fill out my NCAA bracket. And I’m losing big time. So I’m thinking next year, instead of going the educated route, I might try something more random.
That’s what Kaid Benfield did, a writer for the Natural Resources Defense Council Blog. He filled out his bracket based on Walk Scores. You know, the score that indicates how walkable your neighborhood or community is.
Benfield obtained Walk Scores for the arenas where each Sweet 16 team plays their home games. So based on that, who’s the big winner in this tournament? Marquette, because the Bradley Center, where they play, is a downtown arena with a “walker’s paradise” Walk Score score of 95.
