      • Williamson elbows defenders out of the way much akin to Blake Griffin. Should be offensive fouls.

                Yep. Absolutely. Both of those teams deserve 1 Seeds. Honestly? Those were two of the best teams in the country. Either would hand UK, Tennessee or whoever a loss. UNC made a great case for the final 1 Seed. Both teams were exhausted by the pace of that game. And, I don’t think any team, aside from UNC or Duke, could play at that pace, and win.

                  I was already pretty sold on taking both of these teams deep in my bracket, but that game helped solidify it. Still not sure how to take UVA losing, but Florida State played a hell of a game and they're a good team, so I'm not too worried about it.

                  • I went to FNM tonight, so I didnt end up watching the game, but honestly, I followed it when I could and a game that good... I almost feel like UNC should drop to a 2 just because something that great deserves a real consequence. But that's not the way things should work.

                      UK already beat UNC earlier in the season.

                      • Day 12 is in the books and updated (hopefully all correct this time!). Pretty chaotic day with a lot of 1-seeds going down, but the biggest impacts are in the A-10 (which shrunk the bubble) and the MW (which puts us perilously close to shrinking the bubble again).

                        Also, a TON of championship games set up. Gonna go in chronological order for tomorrow. (America East already covered earlier)

                              Sure. And, you probably think Kentucky could beat Duke, even though we thoroughly demolished Kentucky. I’m telling you, UNC is legit. They deserve a 1 Seed. So does Kentucky. I think Gonzaga should get bumped. It won’t happen. But, it should.

                                FSU is big, powerful and deep. And, they’re red hot right now. Duke barely beat them in the regular season. Yeah. They’re legit.
