Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) February 26, 2009 — Pizza-loving basketball fans have a shot at $50,000 in cash, thanks to Bracket Buster â€• the college basketball tournament promotion being launched in March by Boston’s The Gourmet Pizza, a casual dining chain with locations in 26 states throughout the country.
