NCAA Tournament: Zion Williamson, Brandon Clarke among top players in Sweet 16

Columbus man Gregg Nigl speaks to GMA about his perfect NCAA tournament bracket the last perfect bracket remaining

The odds of having a ideal bracket at this point are about 1 in 281 trillion.

That's noteworthy, because it's Nigl's bracket.

In the five years since the NCAA began tracking online brackets on its own website, as well as those of ESPN, CBS, Yahoo, Fox, and Sports Illustrated, this is the first time anyone has entered the Sweet 16 with a flawless bracket. "How do I know that this is, you know, real?" he asked. He did, and found his bracket, named "center road" was on the front page.

"Yeah, this is my friend's bracket (group) that he invited me to, and I nearly didn't fill it out because we were just doing it for fun and I'm in a couple other ones at work and stuff", Nigl told the NCAA.

In 7 hours Man Utd plan upgrade of Pogba deal
Click through the mini-gallery above to see Real's highest-paid players, and what they earn weekly, according to Total Sportek. Do you think Pogba would thrive at Real? "If he wants to stay and Manchester United are happy for him to stay, he will stay".

So what was Nigl's strategy?

"Sometimes it's which teams I like better". Yes, hoops fans that love a good Cinderella story in March Madness are left wanting, but what's left is the teams many deemed the best in the country now left to duke it out for a chance at the title. It's a combination of things. I do look at the rankings too. The odds of perfectly guessing every game in a bracket are roughly 1 in 9.2 quintillion. "I know that. I'm not going to say I knew every matchup by any means".

Will his picks hold up through the tournament's final 15 games? Eight elimination games will be played over two nights on Thursday and Friday, with the winners earning the right to face off in the Elite Eight this weekend and a chance to go to the Final Four. Don't get me wrong, a bunch of this is luck. "I'm pretty sure it's not going to remain ideal but if I go wrong, I hope MI goes further than I have them".
