March Madness is over, and that means we've got winners for our Axios Richmond bracket pool.

The big picture: South Carolina beat Iowa 87-75, earning the Gamecocks their third NCAA women's championship.

  • The Connecticut Huskies defeated Purdue 75-60 and became the first men's team in 17 years to win back-to-back championships.

Zoom in: Brian Kirkpatrick won our women's bracket challenge, beating out seven people who also had South Carolina going all the way.

  • Brendan Sheehy won the men's bracket over 25 other people who predicted UConn would take it all.
