Let's combine the two ideas:

      Above I see the matrix with coloring to point to the winner - fine.
      But overlay that on the matrix with all the counts.

This keeps the counts that I consider important, with colors over winning 
column and row.

To clarify - all of winning row and column get marked "winning".
