If Texas didn't want to get "screwed" they shouldn't have lost 7 times.

A lot of potential upsets in this region.

I kinda like Arizona to win it, but I'm just not sure. It's the hardest region to predict IMO.

I thought Bucknell could be a tough out until this point. Two words: Kemba Walker. I like Penn State upsetting Temple and if it wasn't for their terrible defense I would've gone Oakland over Texas.

I got Duke beating UConn in the end.

I think Mizzou can get to the sweet 16. I know Uconn played well in the BE tourney, but they were inconsistent this season.

I currently have SDSU in the final 4, but that will probably change by tomorrow night.

It depends which Mizzou team shows up. If its the good Mizzou we can possibly go to the Elite 8. Bad Mizzou and we will lose by 20+ to Cincy in the first round.

I have Duke winning with little confidence if Irving doesn't play, if he does then i have a lot of confidence in Duke going to the final four.

UConn lives too much by Kemba Walker. I have a feeling that good defensive teams like SDSU and Duke can slow him down and the rest of the team wont be able to pick up the slack. I wouldn't be surprised if they dont even make it out of the first weekend, however i'm not banking on that happening.

I wanted to take SDSU. However, I went with UConn. Duke got a real tough draw. 3rd round on they could be knocked off. Tennessee, Texas then one of SDSU or UConn are capable of taking down Duke. They'll miss Kyrie Irving at some point in the tournament.

I like Memphis to upset Arizona and Penn State to take down Temple.

I think Duke's doing alright. Vanderbilt is the only good team Tennessee has beaten since mid-January, and Rick Barnes' postseason record is pretty bad, coupled with the fact that Texas hasn't really shown up in the past month or so.

West Virginia last year. Duke struggles on the road in general that's why you see the losses to St. John's and G-Town the last two years. On a neutral court they are a pretty dominant team recently.

But I've watched Talor Battle a lot over the last four years, and this kid is going to light it up. He's one of the best shooters in the tournament, and if Jeff Brooks grabs the boards, PSU can really cause some trouble.

Duke is going to lose somewhere just like how Kansas lost to Northern Iowa in round 2 last year. I have a feeling Duke will lose to an unexpected team, maybe Tennessee? Maybe Arizona? Who knws but i got san diego state winning the west. your right whoever said games in anaheim are like home games to san diego state.

san diego state just needs guard help. DJ Gay and Chase Tapely needs to step their game up. The Bigs: Kawhi Leonard, Malcolm Thomas, and Billy White are beast!!!!

Why? I feel as that each year people pick against Duke because they WANT to see them lose... they don't necessarily THINK they will lose.


Either way, I usually have Duke getting to the sweet sixteen or elite 8 each year and then bowing out... I do feel that they are one of the top 3 teams in the country, but they have a lot of wild cards. Ryan Kelly, the Plumless and then Dawkins/curry... Also, is Kyrie Irving coming back? We all know what Singler and Smith bring to the table, but who else will step up. Last year there was a lot more experience and it paid off. This year, it could go both ways.

I do think they will get to the Elite 8 though. Arizona and texas are oth very talented... but who knows what texas is doing, and Arizona is really one great player surrounding by a few other talented guys. Duke can definitely match up with 'Zona.

IF Irving does come back, that changes everything. Duke should make it to the Final Four. (Though I have UConn and I have to stick to it based on Irving missing out, so I'll bite the bullet here.)

If Irving plays like he did before he gets hurt Duke jumps to the National Title favorite. Keep in mind all the talk was that Duke may go undefeated before he got hurt.

Coach K has confirmed that Kyrie Irving will be playing in the 1st round of the #NCAA tournament.

Jay Williams via Twitter

So he is playing but my guess is that in the first weekend he will only play 10-15 minutes per game. But when Duke plays good teams later on my guess is that he will either start or get a lot of minutes.

One of the tougher choices for me. SDSU is virtually playing a home game, but Calhoun thrives out West. I picked UConn but I would completely understand anyone taking SDSU since UConn played 5 games in 5 days, and usually we see teams that play 4 games in 4 days struggle.

Dude plays his *** off. If he could develop some sort of driving game, I don't see how he isn't a 2nd round pick. The kid is simply a big shot shooter. He hits every big shot, and he's so good off the ball. Not sure how he can't get picked. Teams need shooters like him.

I still think they're overrated. They won by 30 but it was against Bucknell. They've been on a roll lately but they struggled right before that.

i feel like san diego state can beat uconn. why? because san diego state has a very tough front court, solid defense, they just need guard help. but they have many seniors on this team, i think theyre hungry and want to go to the final 4.

if san diego state found a way to beat byu and stop jimmer fredette, why cant they stop kemba walker? kemba is very well balanced player while jimmer takes high risk shots, but makes em. jimmer is talented in different ways then Kemba, both NBA lottery picks, but i think jimmer will get drafted higher than walker..

so for the sdsu/uconn game, i would go with sdsu.....

I am in full agreement with you there. I will admit that UConn did look good in their first round game but I am still not convinced they will get past the sweet 16. As you mentioned, they beat Bucknell, who really cares right? The best team the Bisons had played this year was Villanova at the start of the year when they lost by 16.

I have them losing to SD State in the Elite 8 and I am sticking by that. Good start for them though.

If K wasn't so damn stupid, and made Kyrie attack the zone, instead if jacking up eighty foot three-point attempts, it wouldn't have been that close. Horrible coaching by K, and it almost cost Duke the win.

Agree. You could clearly see the lights on the backboard light up as the foul happened.

Also, the game is 40 minutes long. If you want to win, then decide the game during the first 39 minutes and don't rely on a "call" to save your day.
The one thing I absolutely HATE about sports is when a ref takes over the game. Let the players determine the outcome. The idiot on Texas took WAY too long bringing the ball up the court. He didn't give the team an opportunity for a 2nd chance.
And the shot he did was horrible. He was hoping for a bailout call by the officials, so I'm glad that didn't happen.

Maybe I see things with a little homerism, I do live about 12 miles from the University of Arizona! All you had to do was say Boo! and Brown went to the FT line! Derrick Williams was fouled pretty hard and got a no call in that final minute or two as well. In the final sequence it was obvious there was no foul on the initial shot even though Brown tried to draw contact. There was no foul on the rebound but as Texas tried to go back up with the rebound the clock expired and then he was fouled. It was a tough loss for Texas, better luck next time!

If the ref's made the right call and awarded the timeout, Arizona wouldn't have been in the position to get the game winning and-one... No one is relying on a perfectly officiated game, but like Rick Barnes said, bad calls happen, but when it is something like a referee's count like that, it should be right.. EVERY time... It's unarguable... It was 4 seconds... Joseph calls time out... The ref THEN puts the 5 fingers to the face and slapped Texas with an unfair loss...

Child, please!!! What's done is done, that is true... I'm finally starting to cool down from it all anyways, mainly because either team would end up getting murdered by the Dukies... In the meantime, enjoy the Texan recruits that weren't good enough for our team. (i.e. my former classmate and your new superhero Rex Burkhead)

Not good enough for your team? lmao Stop crying son, you're embarrassing yourself now. What does Texas have? 1 national championship in the last 50 years or so? Huskers have 5. Enjoy! :rolleyes:

Arizona has 1 superstar in Derrick Williams and a lot of young talent that is still getting to know each other. There is only 1 senior(Jamelle Horne) and a handful of juniors that are mere role players. This was due to the 2 years that Lute Olson had health problems and Arizona went through 2 interim coaches(Kevin O'Neill and Russ Pennell) in 2 years. Recruiting during that time took a big hit and as a result last year was the 1st year Arizona missed the NCAA Tournament since 1986. Now they are loaded with young talent and have a top 10(some say top 5) class coming in for next year. Arizona is a team that will fight to the end, Duke is in for a battle!

The main guys are F Derrick Williams, F Solomon Hill, PG Momo Jones, and G Kevin Parrom. All are sophomores. Freshman PG Jordin Mayes had his career scoring high against Texas and will likely see some action off the bench along with G Kyle Fogg. There are 2 players at the C position, neither is very productive but they do take a lot of space in the key. Arizona as a team is a very good free throw shooting team and has the ability to play well in transition or in the half court. Duke will be a big challenge for Arizona, I expect this game will be a battle.
