Timberwolves PG Ricky Rubio Had a Perfect Day 1 NCAA Tournament Bracket

Vanessa de Beaumont@@vanessadebeauContributor IMarch 18, 2016

According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, only 14,525, or about 0.1 percent, of the 13 million men's basketball NCAA tournament brackets submitted to ESPN.com remain perfect after Day 1 action.

If your bracket resembles the one filled out by Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio, then you would be among them.

So far, he's 16-of-16, having accounted for upsets few saw coming.

Not bad for a player who never stepped foot on the NCAA hardwood.
