2018 College Championship – Finalists

We started at 15 players, now we’re down to 3. Who do you think will win the 2018 College Championship? You can find my predictions at the bottom!

Thursday, April 19, and Friday, April 20, 2018:

William Scott on Jeopardy!
William Scott

Freshman, Tufts University
Los Altos, California
53 correct, 4 incorrect
43.86% in first on buzzer (49/114)
2/3 on Daily Doubles (Net Earned: $1,800)
2/2 in Final Jeopardy
Average Coryat: $19,300

Hannah Sage on Jeopardy!
Hannah Sage

Sophomore, University of Central Florida
Sarasota, Florida
35 correct, 3 incorrect
28.95% in first on buzzer (33/114)
2/2 on Daily Doubles (Net Earned: $5,000)
1/2 in Final Jeopardy
Average Coryat: $17,500

Dhruv Gaur on Jeopardy!
Dhruv Gaur

Freshman, Brown University
Gainesville, Georgia
46 correct, 5 incorrect
35.96% in first on buzzer (41/114)
5/5 on Daily Doubles (Net Earned: $12,000)
2/2 in Final Jeopardy
Average Coryat: $14,500
Predictions:If you just look at the stats on the surface, William and Dhruv have been stronger on the buzzer than Hannah. However, Hannah has the strongest Coryat score in Double Jeopardy ($28,000 to William’s $25,200 and Dhruv’s $16,400). Hannah is definitely the most adept at handling the more difficult material, which might neutralize any sort of buzzer advantage that William and Dhruv may have. For Dhruv to have any shot, he’ll need to find at least 4 of the 6 Daily Doubles in the Final, be aggressive with them, and not be incorrect. I think that this will ultimately be a very close Final, where if you played it 10 times, that Hannah would win 4, William 4, and Dhruv 2.
