Two big-money managers can claim bragging rights for predicting Duke's championship Monday night.
Steve Pagliuca, managing director at $75 billion private equity firm Bain Capital and co-owner of the Boston Celtics, correctly predicted in a March 18 CNBC.com story that the top-seeded Blue Devils would win their region and ultimately the whole tournament. A Duke alum, he was in Indianapolis for the game with his family.
Pagliuca also correctly predicted that Kentucky would make the Final Four, but missed on choosing Arizona and Virginia.
"It was a fun ride!" Pagliuca said in an email Tuesday.
