UConn Will Win Tonight, Says '1 In 3 Million' Librarian Who Nailed Final 4

Apr 4, 2011

Oregon school librarian Diana Inch is the only person out of 3 million who entered Yahoo! Sports' Tourney Pick 'Em contest to correctly predict that Butler, the University of Connecticut, Kentucky and Virginia Commonwealth would be in the men's Final Four of this year's NCAA basketball tournament.

And she got Saturday's games right with her predictions that Butler would beat VCU and that UConn would get past Kentucky.

So which team does she like in tonight's Butler-UConn final?

UConn, by a score of 83-74, Seattle Weekly reports.

Inch's secret? It's a combination of a "custom made equation involving the teams' seeding and ... their mascots," the weekly writes.

Earlier we noted that March Madness isn't just a men's thing.

Update at 9:30 a.m. ET, April 5: As you've probably heard, UConn did indeed win.
