At Duke.  This feels like a home team win type of game.  

 

Duke was bad, IMO, last night, I expect K to use that and gain an edge for Saturday.

Louisville hasn't been able to hang with good offense all season. I'm expecting Duke to win comfortably if they don't play like total crap.

Maryland down to 40th in AdjO in KenPom. That's probably still too high. 

 

Again, college basketball is just bad this year. I like that any team can win any game, but the product just really stinks overall. It's very, very noticeable compared to years past, IMO.

What’s funny is that they were 40th entering the game.

Yes, it’s down.

I’m not a huge fan of this Duke’s teams chances of going deep into the tourney but in a down year, they may be the best team once they get healthy.

In a lot of years, I think this Duke team would be fortunate to be a sweet 16 team and hope to be one of the top 4 teams in the conference come ACCT time.

And Butler lost tonight because of course they did. 

 

Also, now that Seton Hall is healthy, they're a top 5-10 team.

I have an idea for selection Sunday. No seeds. Pull 64 teams out of a hat. Play ball.

#8 Oregon lost by 11 to Washington St tonight. Such a crazy year. Not in a good way IMO. But maybe the Tourney will be even more awesome because of it.

Yes but if there was ever a year where “an upset” won’t really be an upset, it this year.

UMbC aside, the 1 vs 16 games will be the only games that should be in the bag

They will push the Cinderella storyline but there are no Cinderella’s this year. No one is good.

Dayton is fun to watch. Great final 5 minutes of their game at St. Louis, erasing a 13 point deficit. They've got some playmakers.

And the Billikens tie it at the buzzer to go to OT. Best game I've watched this season.

Dayton nails a 3 at the buzzer in OT, down 1, to secure the win. Fantastic game.
