May the best “bentch” win

I wonder if Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan and Rabbi Yonah Schiller have discussed the halachik implications of the March madness final tonight, but both have a lot to gain from this game. The OU put out a nice piece about the matchup. Both schools are home to the  Jewish Learning Initiative on Campus,  a cooperative effort of the OU, Hillel: the Foundation for Jewish Campus Life, and the Torah Mitzion organization.  The UCLA Bruins may have an advatage off the "bentch," because of a Jordan Farmar, who is Jewish and had a bar mitzvah.

Seems that either the JLIC of UCLA or the JLIC or UF will celebrate winning the NCAA. May the best "bentch" win.
