Paige Spiranac brands her March Madness bracket 'a dumpster fire' just one round into college basketball tournament

PAIGE SPIRANAC felt the pain of most sports fans when it came to her March Madness bracket.

The golf personality, 27, followed most hopeful Americans in filling in a bracket for the annual basketball tournament.

And, like many others across the country, her predictions were pretty much done with just days into the action.

She tweeted on Sunday: "Is everyone else’s bracket a dumpster fire too?"

March Madness is a 68-team single elimination game tournament that decides college basketball's national champions.

It captures the imagination of sports fans every year, with most filling out a bracket to predict every result and the eventual winner.

According to the NCAA's official website, the longest streak of correct picks was 49 games.

The website report added: 'An Ohio man correctly predicted the entire 2019 NCAA tournament into the Sweet 16, something we've not seen in years of tracking publicly verifiable online March Madness brackets at all major games.

"In 2021, multiple monumental upsets had all of the remaining perfect brackets busted on the 28th game. That of course follows 2020, when Covid-19 forced the cancellation of the NCAA tournament.

"Before the 2019 NCAA tournament, the longest streak of correct picks we had seen in a March Madness bracket was 39 games, achieved in 2017."

So Paige wasn't alone in having her bracket busted before the first weekend of the tournament was done with.

This year's NCAA Tournament is taking place all in the state of Indiana due to Covid after it was cancelled 12 months ago.

The action began with the First Four on Thursday before first round began on Saturday.

Second round action concludes on Monday by which point there will be just 16 teams remaining.

The national championship game is set for Monday, April 5 in Indianapolis.

By that point, Paige and the golfing world will have their attention on the Masters at Augusta the following weekend.
