4-year-old boy picked Kentucky-UConn to make NCAA title game in bracket

SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. -

A 4-year-old boy from Wisconsin is bucking the odds by correctly picking the Kentucky and Connecticut to reach the championship game of the NCAA tournament.

Among those who picked the Wildcats and Huskies to battle it out for the title is little Henry Schoenherr from Sun Prairie, Wis.

The 4-year-old likes soccer, but he scored big in his family's first NCAA pool.

His father read off the teams and mascots, and Henry made his picks, all the way up to Connecticut and Kentucky.

"Every round, it was like there’s no way,” said Henry’s father, Andy. “This is a longer shot, a longer shot and the two kept winning, and it was like, he might have something here."

Henry didn't have his bracket in any of the big money national pools, but his father said he will get some ice cream and movie time.

Henry's dad hasn't taken his son to Vegas -- yet. But he said he brought Henry to the dog track and the four-year old was eight for eight in choosing the top dogs.

According to ESPN, only 1,780 of more than 11 million brackets entered in its Tournament Challenge had UConn and Kentucky as the last two teams standing.
