Bartelstein Bests Colleagues in Bracket Challenge

Maybe it's the fact that he used to be a sports anchor... Weekend morning anchor Steve Bartelstein beat out the other CBS 2 "VIPs" in the station's Bracket Challenge. He scored 192 points, placing him in the 76th percentile. Chris Wragge, himself a former sports anchor, scored 188, followed by Ducis Rodgers at 170 and John Elliott, who was right in the middle at the 50th percentile, with 162 points.

Here's a look at where everyone finished:
Steve Bartelstein192
Chris Wragge188
Ducis Rodgers170
John Elliott162
Sam Ryan158
Kristine Johnson144
Jim Rosenfield140
Lonnie Quinn138
John Discepolo122
Dana Tyler98

Part of the reason Rosenfield ranked so low is that he chose his alma mater Duke to win it all. And as good as Bartelstein did, he was still 32 points from making it into the top 100. The grand prize is a 40-inch flat panel LCD TV.

Last night's college basketball championship went into overtime with Kansas beating out Memphis 75-68 meaning the late edition of CBS 2 News did not start until 12:23 a.m.
