Could be worse-- but could be better.
Thank goodness for the 6 seed-- and no crazy dangerous matchup with Zona or Kentucky...
Wow! A 6 seed!
And the 3 seed is Pitt? I'll take it.
Let the fun begin!
They sure looked excited to play us. We don't have the worst draw, but it ain't gonna be a cake walk either.
Even Seth Davis is shocked.
I'll take it!
VCU is a solid team from a pretty good conference. Should be an excellent game.
Good draw, considering we're a #6 seed. Getting VCU to start is better than a major conference foe. And Pitt isn't a terrible matchup, even though they're big. No dominant scorers. Still a chance at another Sweet 16.
Duke as a 6 seed gets VCU- a team with two senior guards and a potential second round againt Pitt. Certainly not awful
Let's beat VCU first.
This region should be titled "Tradition".
Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, UCLA, and Indiana all in the same region with possibilities of all advancing to the second round.
Not the worst matchups, nor the best.
We CAN'T overlook VCU, They are a decent team and athletic. Could cause some matchup problems but I think Duke wins by 10 or so.
Pitt should be a interesting game, but cant overlook VCU so I wont comment on this any further.
Could anyone say where are we playing ? Thx.
Assuming we beat VCU...all's we have to do against pitt is take away gray and we could win easily.
Hopefully we can make a deep run..and maybe shock the world!
When is the first round game? or have they said yet? Game day/time etc,. ?
Would've rather had Wazzou than Pitt, though.
Dang-- a shame our 3rd seed isn't Washington State.
Nice to see us above BC-- out of conference sched worked for us.
UNC-Texas in sweet 16? awesome.
This has to be the first time Duke and Vanderbelt have ever been the same seed, huh?
Game is Thursday in Buffalo, NY. Possible second round in Buffalo on Saturday.
VCU is a tough team. We should not sleep on them.
VCU is very good. I'll give you guys a good scouting report on them later -- I know them pretty well.
Still, we have to be thrilled with this seed. We can lose any game. But we have a reasonable chance to beat any of the teams in our way. That's all I want.
Great point Jumbo-- I totally agree. This afternoon I couldn't see a way we could win our second round game (thinking 1 or 2 seed opponent).
So, relatively, I'm happy.
