    So we're pointed at uk and Roy at ku.

    And the NCAA never rigs things. Right.

    State in! I was thinking at this point that they were going to be left out, but glad they made it.

    No play-in game for the Pack!

    Was Berkeley the only at-large Pac 12 team, and they got stuck with a play-in? Wow.

    UNC gets unlucky with Kansas having a pretty easy path and home court advantage, and Michigan could shoot the lights out on them, but overall their path to the Elite 8 looks pretty easy.

    This may come back to bite me, but I really don't think much of Notre Dame. And they're a great matchup for us style- and athletic-wise.

    Not saying they don't have good wins - they certainly do. But they also got killed by Missouri, lost to St. John's, Maryland, and Rutgers, and looked pretty ugly in the tournament loss to Louisville. They don't have a ton of size, they're not going to go running up and down the court against us. They could go off from 3, which is a risk, but all things considered, they seem to be a favorable matchup for us.

    Not only did State get in, they have a winnable game. Georgetown is a tough 3 for them, but State has a chance against them.

    Kansas looks good in this region. I'd have more to say, but my 3 year old is not for that right now.

    As a Georgetown grad/fan, I don't like Belmont and then maybe NC State. Tough.

    I think St. Mary's might be better than Notre Dame. And I'm certainly okay with a matchup against Notre Dame. Their style matches very nicely with what we want to do.

    They also have losses to UGa, Rutgers, Maryland (at home), and St. John's, and got blown out by Cincy, Louisville, Georgetown, Gonzaga, Mizzou, and UConn (at home). And while beating Louisville is nice, this is the same Louisville that went out the next game and lost to Providence by 31. Flukey games happen.

    I think we match up very nicely against Notre Dame. Can we lose to them? Sure. But if I had to pick a 7 seed whose style is great for us, it's Notre Dame.

    With our luck, ND will lose to Xavier, who I think is much better than a 10 seed.

    With non-ACC refs, too.

    I think they have the potential to be much better than a #10 seed. But they also finished the season 13-11, with not a single really meaningful win after mid-December.
