Anybody else got them beating Pittsburgh?

I do. I have them in the elite eight.

I really, really like this team.

Frank Hassell is a beast down on the post. He was big in their upset over Notre Dame last year. Bazemore is a really good player too. They're going to make some noise.

I got them over Butler but not Pitt. A big part of Old Dominion is their rebounding as they rebound about half of their missed shots, but i think Pitt can match their size and limit those offensive rebounds.

I don't really know much about them. I've seen Butler enough this year to definitely pick OD over them though. Butler is just not that good.

exactly especially since they almost won it all last year and only lost basically one main piece but still have a few good players left..If they were in any other bracket i would take them to beat the number 1 but not in this one

Should be interesting.

ODU had a great team this year. I watch about half of their games and they dominated the offensive boards in everyone of them. They couldnt against Butler and thats why they lost. Too bad for them four of their five starters graduate.

Crazy finish though. Lots of great finishes today

I had Butler beating OD in my actual bracket. I don't think Butler is that good this year, they could make the sweet 16 but thats it IMO

So you think they can beat Pitt but not KSU or Wisconsin?? I think Pitt is going to be a very tough game. But when Butler is focused on defense (and they always are in the tournament) they force you to play an "ugly" style that most teams don't like and they cause problems. If they get past Pitt I think they can go back to the final four, because the rest of the bracket is really weak. Again, Pitt will be very tough though.
