A 12 Year Old Nailed A Top NCAA Bracket

But he is too young to claim his prize. One really smart or just plain lucky 12 year old, just won a perfect NCAA bracket.

March Madness is an exciting, (or devastating) time for college basketball fans. 

The contest is run every year by ESPN, and millions of people enter, trying to predict the perfect bracket of what the tournament will look like.

After Duke beat Wisconsin, the 6th grader went to the top of the competition.

Currently, the young boy, Sam Holtz is tied for the prize-a $20,000 Best Buy gift card and a trip to the 2015 Maui Invitational. A raffle will decide the winner.

Unfortunately, Sam Holtz is not 18 years old-one of the requirements for entering the contest. Perhaps his father will help claim his prize if he wins, or the young boy will get recognition in other ways for his amazing basketball knowledge (or psychic abilities).
