Pat Riddlesprigger defeats Paul George, advances to championship of Fresno State bracket challenge

Bulldog Sports

FRESNO, Calif. – Giannis strikes again.

Pat Riddlesprigger is in the championship match of Fresno State’s online bracket challenge, his Cinderella run continuing thanks to another tweet of support from Giannis Antetokounmpo:

The “Greek Freak” was able to once again persuade his one million Twitter followers to #VotePat. Almost two-thirds of the 6,738 votes in Thursday’s Final Four matchup against Paul George went to Riddlesprigger, whose daughter is dating Antetokounmpo.

No. 1 Melvin Ely, the second-leading scorer in Fresno State history, is the only player left standing in the field of 64 besides Riddlesprigger. The championship round will take place on Saturday.
