We had a two-way tie between MKE_Gopher and KindofGreen -- both with 11 point variances from the actual 86-74 score. But MKE's prediction (82-67) was closest to the Gophers' actual score and thus wins under the tie-breaking order (KofG's prediction was 80-79).

So, MKE_Gopher's name goes on the Roll Call of Honor (below) and here are the top five places:
1st Place (tie): MKE_Gopher & Kindofgreen (11 pt variance) - 15 points awarded
2nd Place (tie): Gopher737, Rick Mons and Southpaw (13 pts off) - 10 points awarded
3rd Place (tie): gopher1more and jamiche (14 pts off) -7 points awarded
4th Place (tie): book, Dr.Don and madtown gopher (15 pts off) - 5 points awarded
5th Place (tie): Big Play and rccola889 (16 pts off) - 3 points awarded

Predict the Score Standings thru Iowa Game

Don't think this has happened before ... this was KindofGreen's first basketball prediction (at least for this season) and he managed a first-place finish. Pretty impressive ... maybe he's related to MikieS? (KofG: MikieS had an unbelievable run of first place finishes earlier this season -- check out the Roll Call and I think he had at least one more 1st place where he lost the tie-breaker.)

We've passed 100 participants this season ... and still have a few who are languishing at the bottom with zero points. As the old joke goes, you gotta make a prediction in order to win.

Rick Mons...I just want you to know that I am kind of laying in the weeds, getting ready to slowly make my move from 8th position, 35 points, with 1 listing on the Honor Roll, and making a run at MikieS. Go Doc Don.

Go Gophers
