WAB: Ken Pomeroy goes 22 for 22

Bill Walton went 21 of 22 from the field in the 1973 Championship game against Memphis. Yesterday Ken Pomeroy did him one better, as every team that Pomeroy predicted to win managed to do so. As Pomeroy noted, that was a huge upset in and of itself:

Going by his predictions, he would have had his perfect day as a 3038-1 shot. That’s pretty special and it will be a long time before we see another fluke quite like it.

As for the results of all of that perfection, here you are:
