The Population Biology, Ecology and Evolution (PBEE) graduate program 2022 NCAA basketball tournament challenge winners were Jacoby Robinson for the men’s tournament and Levi Morran for the women’s tournament.
A graduate student in the Gerardo lab, Jacoby’s faith in his Jayhawks paid off as their championship win catapulted Jacoby past grad student David Jimenez-Vallejo for the win. Both Jacoby and David picked 3 of the Final 4 teams correctly in a crazy year for upsets.
On the other hand, Levi’s faith in his Hoosiers nearly sunk his bracket on the women’s side. However, South Carolina’s win in the championship was just enough for Levi to pass Daniel Weissman at the end.
