Keisling wins Riz's Roundball contest

By DAVID RISLEY - drisley@thecouriertimes.com

I was 9-6 in my predictions for Week 15, 2-2 on IHSAA boys basketball state championship games and 7-4 in NCAA men’s basketball tournament games. I had a 168-57 record over the 15 weeks for an average winning percentage of .747.

Larry Keisling, with an 11-4 record in the final week of the Riz’s Roundball Picks contest, beat my mark and no one tied me. Keisling overtook me in the final week and finished with a 169-56 record (.751 winning percentage), which was the best record among all participants.

Therefore, Keisling is the winner of the 15-week Riz’s Roundball Picks contest and will be awarded the prize.

The records of other contestants who completed at least 14 weeks of the contest were Jim Jeffries 158-67, Chad Niccum 155-70, Lisa Knotts 145-65, and Charles Drury 139-71.

Look for the 5th annual Riz’s Pigskin Picks contest this fall, starting with the opening of the high school football season Aug. 19.
