Duke as a 1 seed?

Where do they put the asterisk? Is it on the trophy or do they add it to the bottom of the banner that the winning team hangs? Or better yet, does Carolina hang a banner for it? Im just curious.

Not literally, but you know Lawson makes a wittle-bitty difference if he's on the court this weekend...Ya think?

If you have 3 teams in in UNC Pitt and UConn that leaves one spot left. Memphis only has 3 losses but two of the teams that beat them also played Duke, AND LOST! Xavier beat Memphis on the road then got smashed by Duke at home. Louisville only has one less loss one of which was a 30 some odd point loss to non tourney team and one was to Minn. at home. Mich. State is the product of a conference with 9 equally mediocre teams. Oklahoma has fallen off and lost there opening round game. Wake will have won neither the reg season or tourney title in the ACC something Duke would have done to put them in the discussion. Please dispute any of this. Im not saying the get in because as the last number 1 because they deserve it, but because there is NO ONE left more impressive. If Duke wins tomorrow they Deserve it, and if Louisville losses tonight they should ABSOLUTLY get it!! Deal with it.

Calm down junior...Duke does not deserve squat...They may fall ass backwards into a 1 seed, but deserve? I don't think so...The BE is a better league, and the 3 top teams would fair pretty well in the ACC.

I'd kinda like to see dook get that 1 seed, then struggle to beat them and go out against an 8-9 winner in the next game.

its tough to win the ACC 3 times a row

Duke deserves a 1 seed if they win the ACC tourney

like I said im NOT saying they deserve it necessarily because of what they have done and them being so great but because other teams have fallen on their faces. Its called opportunistic more so then it is deserving if that makes any sense

And I would say they could absolutly lose to a 16 seed in the first round. Because they have 0 inside presence and that is what always does lower seeds in. If they are not hitting jump shots then yeah they will lose, but if they get on a hot streak they could be in the Final Four. Just like about 50 other teams that will be in the tourney.

I wouldn't be surprised at all to see the selection committee give duke a 1 seed. If I were a duke fan, I don't know that I would want to tempt fate as potentially the first 1 seed ever to lose to a 16.

UNC, Pitt, Lville and the final number one will be between Duke and Memphis. If Duke wins tomorrow night they get it, if not they are a second seed.

I think the problem with duke getting it is the fact that they are going to jump teams ahead of them in ranking to do it, and that's bad form.

Mst had it but lost, Conn had it but lost (they could still get it, but I doubt it)

Oklahoma had a shot at it, but lost.

Now Duke has a shot at it.

That being the last number 1 seed.

Im worried now lol, they will get it an lose. If you think about it other then Henderson and E Williams the rest of Duke's team is probably Less athletic then any of the 16's will be. Atleast they would be part of history

Im not saying it will be an easy game. Just making note that UNC will not be able to claim conference champs this year because according to the league that goes to the tourney winner.

Carolina is the regular season champion and will hang a banner for that. The conference tournaments haven't meant anything really since the NCAA expanded the NCAA tournament (except for those teams in leagues that don't usually get at large bids). If winning the ACC tournament was the only way to get into the REAL tournament then you can bet your ass Lawson would have played today.

Dook will probably end up getting beat tomorrow along with another early exit from the REAL tournament so they ain't hanging poo this year.
