We have a terrific defense and PG and alot of vets but I don't know if we have the offense to go far. I will be happy with the Sweet 16. Although the CBS guys seem to think we have a favorable bracket.

I think the Heels got seriously hosed. First they have to beat Nova and then KU in Kansas City? They should have been higher than a 8.

Aside from Larkin, all of your starters are seniors. Pretty big and strong up front, and that's the weakest and youngest (Freshman center Scott) part of the Buffs team. That's what happens when you're a 10 seed, I guess (getting a very difficult game 2).

Who knows which team will actually show up for the tournament, but go Wolfpack!

Like almost every team they have some flaws but with that backcourt it's hard to count them out.

Agree. Drawing that KU game is really a joke. It's almost like somebody doesn't like Roy or UNC's athletic director or something.

I like the setup for CU. Easy trip to Austin, not playing on anybody's home court which is nice. Illinois obviously can play... they beat Indiana and absolutely took Gonzaga behind the woodshed earlier in the year. Recently they have lost 4 of 6 but three of those were to top 15 teams, Michigan, Indiana and Ohio State.

Miami much the same. I have great respect for any team that can win the ACC Reg. season and then wrap up the tournament as well. Have a few ugly losses on their resume including Arizona by 20. Also, the Florida Gulf Coast loss by 13... yuck.

My question to you socal, how are your bigs? CU has played very well this year outside of a few teams that have impressive size in the paint. ASU absolutely frustrated the hell out of us like that. If teams don't have a huge size advantage, i'll give us a punchers chance against anybody.

In Tad Boyle we trust!

Although I intend to fully support Duke as always, I think St. Louis U has quite the story so I'm all for them going far.

As an alum of a WCC school (Loyola Marymount)...I am rooting for St. Mary's to beat MTSU tonight.

Looking forward to the Canes game on Friday.

Yeah...not playing well so far. Hopefully they can make a second half run.

A sad ending to a great year. ACC Reg and Tourney champs and Sweet 16. Hard to be upset with that even though ending is tough.

Love ya Canes

There were times Miami was getting rebounds but their inability to take them back up and score was their downfall. Well, that, and some insane shooting stretches for Marquette.

So far it looks like Syracuse is bringing back the same gameplan they used against Louisville in the Big East tournament after they built their huge lead.
