(Newser) – A few too many upsets has ended any hope that a college hoops fan will be $1 billion richer at the end of the NCAA tournament. Thanks to upsets of Duke and Ohio State, among others, only three people were still alive in the Warren Buffett challenge heading into yesterday's game between George Washington and Memphis, reports USA Today. All three picked picked George Washington, incorrectly. "If Warren Buffett wants to donate the (billion) to our university, we will take it and use it in good company," said Memphis coach Josh Pastner after the game, reports AP. Still, the top 20 bracket pickers will get $100,000 each when all is said and done.
