URBANA -- UI students gathered at the Illini Union to watch Thursday's basketball tournament games. Alex Bonk was one of them. The freshman admits he was supposed to be studying, but he had his phone and computer handy and just couldn't help but keep an eye on the scores and highlights.
Bonk was also glad his bracket is doing well so far. He even picked a few of Thursday's upsets. He's one of 50 million people playing a bracket.
