It All Comes Down to This

North Carolina and Michigan St battle for the national title tonight
We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Not only will a national champion will be determined tonight in Detroit when North Carolina and Michigan State square off in the final of a very uneventful NCAA tournament, but we'll also have a winner in the LAist bracket contest. Going into tonight's action, we have a tie between "JK's Picks" and "Bracketology" but neither of those brackets has either the Tarheels or Spartans winning it all. In third place, we have "Brif Defeats LAist 09." If Ty Lawson and company prevail tonight, Brif just might do as the name suggests and defeat all of the LAist readers who participated. We'll just have to wait and see. The winner will receive an XBOX 360 Elite System thanks to our friends at Microsoft. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio)
