    Carolina is #1 in the Midwest! Tough region, though with Kentucky, Houston and Kansas the 2,3,4.



    And 3 ACC teams get #1 seeds.



    EDIT: Oh, and the Midwest regional final is in Kansas City. Facing Kansas there would be no fun.




    The talking heads don’t think they’ll make it there. In fact there was talk of them not getting out if the first round.



    Kentucky-NC? What a trackmeet that would be!




    Kansas is garbage this year. Their two best players are hurt/ineligible.

    How does Michigan get a "higher" two seed than Michigan St?



    I guess technically they didn't. Mich is the #8 but gets in the bracket with the #4, while MSU is the #6 but draws the overall #1.




    They compensated by giving the West a tougher 3 and 4 and the East an easier 3 and 4. The final regional totals were 32,34,34 and 36.

    bracket notes



    EAST

    #1 Duke vs. possibly NC Central (both schools are in Durham, NC) The NC Central coach said after the conference tournament win that he didn't want ANY part of Duke and Zion.



    San Jose will have one session with Virginia Tech, St.Louis, Mississippi St and Liberty. Good luck with the ticket sales there.



    Louisville vs. Rick Pitino's son and Minnesota... AWKWARD



    Louisville and Michigan St will go to Des Moines to play lower seeds that are much closer in Minnesota and Bradley.



    SOUTH



    I assume Virginia will get a little farther this year.



    A wounded Kansas St. and Wisconsin head to the west coast to play UC Irvine and a suddenly hot Oregon team, hmmmmmmmmmm



    Purdue gets to go to Hartford and hopes to not see a throng of Villanova fans on the weekend



    Tennessee gets the shortest trips Columbus/ Louisville, but has to possibly play an underseeded Cincinnati in Columbus OUCH





    MIDWEST



    North Carolina was shut out of the South Carolina sites so they shipped them to Columbus?



    If Kansas reaches the Sweet 16 they get to play in their home away from home, Kansas City. As a 4 seed



    No problem selling tickets in Jacksonville with Kentucky coming



    WEST



    Florida St was hoping to go to Jacksonville, they wind up in Hartford playing a nearby Vermont team



    A lot of people calling this region easy and "lacking sizzle" probably because Texas Tech and Florida St aren't traditional powers and Buffalo and Nevada are mostly unknown.

    I like rhe breakdown. Nevada is scary where they are sitting. Buffalo is solid.



    Two of the hottest teams in the country right now, Oregon and Auburn, five seeds. Seems every year a five makes a run.

    This new layout is blinding me, but I'm glad to finally be able to get back here and talk some basketball. I think Virginia got the easiest bracket possible. Tennessee is a threat, but there should really are no excuses for Virginia not making a run to at least the sweet 16 or elite 8.
    I think Florida State and Virginia Tech have roads that should make them fairly confident. Virginia Tech would have to beat Duke, but they can at least convince themselves that if they find a way to limit Zion, they've already beat the rest of the team.
    I'm starting to feel a little bit of a scratchy throat... I'm not sure I'll be able to work past noon tomorrow.

    Murray state about to ruin some brackets. Dang I wish I would have picked them to go deeper. I’d seriously consider taking the Morant kid number 2 overall. He’s showed way more true basketball skill than Zion.

    Ja is the real deal. At one point he had more assists than points. They guy can flat out play. Should be a good matchup with Fl St.

    OOOOOOOkay, Ja morant is clearly a top 3 pick, and may go #2 ahead of RJ Barrett. he could have a 25" vertical and still be a 1st rounder. Add a 40+ and hes looking at a nice NBA career, at worst. Better passer than Dennis Smith Jr is even right now(the last lottery combo guard with ups i can think of).

    PS i think they lose to FSU. team is too long. Will be must see TV though.

    Morant will go #2 i'd bet. I don't really think thats a bold prediction. NBA scouts love raw athletic ability, which is why Luka Doncic dropped to 3rd (remember hearing how fat and out of shape he was? ....oops) . RJ Barrett is not a super athlete or a super shooter. This is the type of player the NBA really struggles with scouting. It reminds me a bit of Jason Tatum, who was as low as 7th on many draft boards, again because he wasn't a raw athlete or a super shooter. NBA teams will always take an athlete because they believe they can teach him things, rather than an instinctive guy, because they worry it won't translate in the NBA

    I'd bet RJ has a great NBA career, but he'll be picked apart more than anyone before the draft. He may even fall to 4th or 5th. Smarky "experts" have even suggested Reddish should go ahead of him because you "know where he fits" at the NBA level.

    Morant is a beast. Affects so many parts of the game. If he can show the discipline to figure out which skill to prioritize on a given night, he could be an all star caliber guard.

    Saturday was the most boring day tournament games I can remember, but Sunday made up for it. The UCF vs Duke game was pretty fun to watch.
    This is exactly the tournament I've been waiting for for years... Sweet 16 is 4 1-seeds, 4 2-seeds, 4 3-seeds, 2 4-seeds, 1 5-seed, and a talented 12 seed. A who's who of coaches -- Coach K, Roy Williams, Calipari, Izzo, Rick Barnes, Tony Bennett, Bruce Pearl, and the list goes on. Whoever survives this tournament will have earned their money.

    Go Hoos!

    It’s amazing to me the differences in “apparent” quality of the crews. I put apparent in quotes because it’s that way to me. I thought the crew that did the Duke-UCF game was horrible. Both ways (Duke fan by the way so not crying about the last plays like many are). I wish I could remeber which game I was watching earlier that I thought the crew was so good. They refrained from blowing the whistle on every little touch, and didn’t immediately call a charge evertime a defender fell down (college ball is flopping at epic NBA levels right now). They called stuff that relevant to the game. Man I wish I could remeber which one...so many games!

    Kind of difficult for Barrett to play any help defense on the lob.

    Really looked like he rushed it, he had time to actually catch it briefly. Kind of tried to two hand tip it. Why wouldn’t Duke have Zion protecting the rim? You had to figure they were going to lob it to the basket, tough to get it over him and still be catchable for anyone else.

    He just panicked and rushed it, easy to forget these guys are 18-19 years old and most will never play pro basketball.

    I swear to god. When RJ got fouled with 6.6 seconds left, the fist thing that came to mind was "Deadsolidshank"! I'm a die hard Dukie so that was hard to watch. How does Zion not get a shot up in the last 1:45 in the game. Dare I say Izzo out coached K?

    This is blasphemous to say, but I don’t think it’s the first time it’s happened lately. For the life of me I cannot understand how he doesn’t have Zion on the block, with the ball at least going through him, every single possession down the stretch. He uncoverable one on one, and smart enough to recognize the double team and make the appropriate pass. But the ball HAS to go through him.
    I think Duke has come to rely too much on their blue chippers. They need someone who will do the little things like box out on the defensive end, and maybe once in a while, rotate and provide a little defensive help.

    I texted my father the same thing. Why isn't he getting the ball on the block every possession or him and RJ running a little 2-man game. It seems when he was getting the ball he was at least 15-20' away from the basket. Agree on the chippers. The is one of the worst shooting teams I can remember. Give me 5 or 6 guys who stay 3-4 years rather than a few 1 and done studs. Reddish NBA stock had to drop a bit. He didn't have a good tourney. Some of those dudes from MSU looked 35!

    I think for Duke, Zion and JR are weak free throw shooters. I think it’s going to cost them a game.

    ****!

    I swear to god. When RJ got fouled with 6.6 seconds left, the fist thing that came to mind was "Deadsolidshank"! I'm a die hard Dukie so that was hard to watch. How does Zion not get a shot up in the last 1:45 in the game. Dare I say Izzo out coached K?

    This is blasphemous to say, but I don’t think it’s the first time it’s happened lately. For the life of me I cannot understand how he doesn’t have Zion on the block, with the ball at least going through him, every single possession down the stretch. He uncoverable one on one, and smart enough to recognize the double team and make the appropriate pass. But the ball HAS to go through him.
    I think Duke has come to rely too much on their blue chippers. They need someone who will do the little things like box out on the defensive end, and maybe once in a while, rotate and provide a little defensive help.

    I texted my father the same thing. Why isn't he getting the ball on the block every possession or him and RJ running a little 2-man game. It seems when he was getting the ball he was at least 15-20' away from the basket. Agree on the chippers. The is one of the worst shooting teams I can remember. Give me 5 or 6 guys who stay 3-4 years rather than a few 1 and done studs. Reddish NBA stock had to drop a bit. He didn't have a good tourney. Some of those dudes from MSU looked 35!

    I don’t think Reddish did much the last half the season. I thought O’Connell should of even played more since he’s really their only good perimeter shooter, but man he loses his guy on defense a lot. And turns it over. White could have helped, but he can’t throw it in the ocean if he’s standing on the beach. I don’t know. Disappointing, I wanted to watch Zion some more, guy is just fun to watch.

    I agree 150%, I HATE all the “one and dones”. And let’s be real, the majority of those guys are playing for an NBA contract, not their school.
