The Motley Fool's exclusive health-care stock tournament crowns a champion.

With March Madness in full swing, we decided to stick with what we know here at The Motley Fool, trading our basketball picks in for stock picks. We formed our own bracket filled with the top Big Pharma and Big Biotech stocks in a winner take-all tournament determined by the collective intelligence of our CAPS community.

This championship round matchup features Celgene and Abbott Labs. Like the injury suffered to Louisville's Kevin Ware, Abbott is missing a key piece after the spin-off of AbbVie. Celgene is playing the role of Michigan, with a roster of known stars (Revlimid as Trey Burke), along with emerging talents (Abraxane as Mitch McGary).

Watch and find out which company cuts down the nets as health care's best stock.
