They faced the highest seed possible in 4 of their 6 games. Only Xavier and South Carolina were “breaks”. Just quit.

I like how you play it off like getting an 11 Seed in the Elite 8 and 7 seed in the FF isn't a big deal.

I don't see how that makes your criticism of the announcers hyping them as a final four contender, when they in fact nearly won the entire tournament, any less dumb.

I was wrong, but they were always way overrated before last year.

The one kid from Wofford looks like the real deal though, averaging over 20 a game.

Mid-Majors to look out for in march imo:
South Dakota St
Stephen F Austin
Jacksonville St
Portland St (Very good guard play between North,Canda, and Woods)
Charleston
Nevada (very good with the martin brothers from NC St)
Think Mountain west could really surprise with how many teams they get in the tourney
Georgia Southern
New Mexico St
Belmont (same conference as J-ville st)
Bucknell (believe they returned 4 starters from last years tourney team.. talented big guy)

To be fair, I'm sure they were worn out from all of the papers they had to write for Finals.

Decent win for Duke. They still played a poor game on Defense, but Duvall dominated the last 3 minutes of the game.

Not at all surprised by Duke losing tonight. However, their Defense is pitiful, they will not get anywhere near a FF with this Defense.

Also, Allen has been a total failure outside of a few games.

Duke might be the worst defensive team at this juncture in the season that I can recall a title contender being. They have far and away the most talent, but it just hasn't clicked at all yet on that end of the floor.

UVA suffocated UNC and West Virginia worked over Trae Young and the Sooners with their pressure today. I would consider both to be legit Final 4 contenders at this point in the season. West Virginia I am particularly intrigued by as Esa Ahmad is set to return (eligibility issue) next Saturday vs. Texas Tech. It's been a couple months, but at Huggins' clinic/open practice Ahmad was clearly one of the Mountaineers' two best players.

I'm reticent to even call then a Title Contender. NC St is not a good Offensive team and they obliterated Duke's Defense. Allen needs to grow some balls and get more involved. Bagley is the only player that seems to show up every game.

If Duke plays any Defense at all, they're the best team in the country. That's still a big IF since they beat up on two mediocre teams this past week. Huge game tom on the road at the U, where they've struggled a great deal.

Also, still looking for Allen to become more involved in the Offense. He didn't have a FG yesterday. Bagley is still a friggin stud.

Big 12 is a lot of fun right now.

Been a pretty interesting year so far, feels like a lot of teams with a legitimate shot at Final Four

Big comeback win for Duke at the U, down 13 half way through 2nd half. Trent was huge. Still need Allen to get his shot back

Pboy what do you think about this? About as dumb as a rule as you can find

I think it's stupid. No money has changed hands and he didn't profit off of it. Someone else making money off of the kid and he has no way of protecting himself from people doing this. Just stupid

A whole lot of nothing. Still, it is kind of irritating they get their panties in a wad over this and let UNC completely off the hook for legitimate violations.

I've been watching some Purdue games on replay, fun team to watch. Good team basketball on both sides of the court a rarity these days. But #3? I think playoffs will say differently. And personal biases aside, Michigan got screwed in this game.

Zion Williamson to Duke. Duke has landed the top 3 recruits in the class of 2018.

Still, can't win a title with only one and dones. Even this year's team, which also has a loaded Frosh class, has struggled at times. I really like O'Connell and Goldwire off the Bench. Those are 2 guys who will be around 4 yrs, but continue to improve their output every year.

The consensus seems to be his game isn't as developed as Barret's.

Anyway, top 4 matchup b/w Duke and UVA on Sat. UVA is having one of the best Defensive seasons in college bball history. They're going to work on making Duke's Guards hit shots to beat them.

That would be correct. To be honest I don't see him being ultra successful in the NBA. Talent and physicality should be more than enough for college though.

Yeah, no way he's better than Williamson just based on last name alone.

UVA with a nice win at Cameron. Duke had their chances, but didn't execute. Allen needs to step up his scoring.

Allen's 3-point attempt at 63-58 was a terrible decision.
