Duke went on the road to ND, Cuse, VT, Louisville and FSU. They only had FSU at him in that group.


UNC faced NOnE of those teams on the road.


So, the idea that UNC won the conference shouldn't carry much weight because Duke clearly had the harder schedule.



UNC had the harder non-conf. schedule. Overall Duke and UNCs SOS is about even (.5945, .5906)

UNC has a better RPI. (3 to Duke's 9)

I think Nova is a lock for a 1. Zags as well because they are #1 in Kenpom and the committee is putting more weight into analytics. Only 1 loss is still remarkable. Duke is 12th in Kenpom. If Arizona beats Oregon they could make a case for a 1 seed. Leaves Kansas, UNC, Duke. I don't think the committee will punish Kansas for 1 bad game.

If Arizona wins, no ACC teams might make a 1 seed. But would probably grab 3 of the 2 seeds. Kentucky on the other. Louisville could end up a 3 if they want to make Oregon a 2.

1. Nova, Zags, Kansas, Ariz/UNC
2. Duke, Kentucky, Ariz/UNC, L'Ville/Oregon

I agree Zona has a case for a 1.

Duke, Zona, Kansas and Nova should be the 1s if Zona wins tonight.

Even the Zags win over Zona was without 2 of Arizona's starters.

UNC over Kansas for the last 1

Please don't give Gonzaga a 1

UNC is now 1 spot ahead in RPI, which should mean very little anyway.

Duke needs a 1 seed or they won't get out of the 1st round.

BTW, I would probably rather be a 2 in the East than a 1 in the South.

 

As good as Nova is, its a geographical advantage for Duke to be in NY for the regional finals vs Memphis.

Very clever of the NIT having Syracuse face UNC Greensboro in the first round. 

 

Well played!
