I dont see why everyone is harping on Duke not being able to handle quick guards, I really dont think that is a problem anymore. Williams and Smith are playing good defense. The only pg to really expose them is Lawson. Maynor is good but he doesnt have Lawsons speed. Guards dont worry me Bigs do although Zou played well today

I like Dayton pulling the upset over West Virginia.

Please explain this? I would be much more concerned with a team with inside presence then with a team with good guard play. I havent really seen my of Nova but I was under the impression that they are an undersized team. Much of their on ball defense has been shored up by E. Williams. No one in the bottom half in Dukes draw is overly concerning to me.

This is just what happens on this board. Any team will probably beat Duke in the eyes of 80% of people here. I am actually surprised people are not talking about Texas taking out Duke rd. 2 here, with Abrams and all.

I haven't filled out any brackets yet, but that would be a good bet.

Ok my opinions about all of this

1. Arizona should not be there

2. Memphis has the talent to beat anybody in this tourney, they just play in a soft conference

3. Western Kentucky scares the shite out of me more than any other team in Carolinas bracket

4. VCU and/or Western Kentucky will probably be the cinderella team

5. I could actually see all number 1 going to the final four, with the exception of Uconn possibly getting beat by Memphis

6. I actually think Duke makes it further this year than last ha

7. I do not see many upsets, but you never know

8. I think Kansas got a screw job with the road they have to travel

9. I think it will be a ho-hum tourney with the exception of 3 or 4 games, and until later with some of the bigger matchups

I've got Memphis, Pittsburgh, UNC and Michigan State in the finals. Yes, Michigan State...

That is not too big of a reach.. Michigan State is a VERY talented program, with a great coach that will prepare them every single game. I think they have a shot

my first upset prediction will be Miss. State over Washington.

Ouch. hahaha, but I don't see that happening, Thomas and Brockman will keep the game close in the first half (they are a big second half team) and then turn it up in the second half. As long as Thomas doesn't turn the ball over, UW should take that game.

This year should be really good, a lot of parity and there really isn't that "can't beat" team. That'd be UNC if they ever got their heads on straight.

I hope not.

I've been hearing a lot of that from the experts and everybody else.

The Illini are offensively challenged this year, but seem to be able to play solid defense consistently.

They aren't built to go deep, but I hope they can overcome the ever-present 5-12 upset special in the first game.

It won't be easy.

I got Temple in the Elite 8 losing to UNC. I just think that if Dionte keeps it going he is one of the best in the nation.
