Really? They had a 5 point lead at the half and they looked like a 1 seed today?

Pitt looked like Pitt to me. They are going to beat the mid major teams by their physical play and wearing them down but they wont be able to do that to the big boys.

5 point lead at the half against a 16 seed play-in team.

BYU does not look so good right now against Wofford and that will be another huge upset.

Florida looks like a legitimate 2 seed right now the way they are playing. I am not buying that they should have gotten a 2 seed but they sure as hell are playing like it.

24.

But they damn sure haven't looked like a #1 seed for 2 weeks. UNC Asheville should never have been in that game.

Although it happens. Duke almost lost to a 16 seed one year. And went on to lose in round 2. We'll see what Pitt is made of, but I will remain skeptical of Jamie Dixon until he can get that team to the final four. There are NO NBA Players on that roster so it is really not probable that they win it all but with their cakewalk of a region they have a good shot to make it to the final four.
