I'm in, Ian.

Heart says Duke; head says Kansas.

If Irving's back, Duke.

This first of the four "First Four" game is pretty good going down the stretch. We'll see how it ends..

Wish these games counted.

I had/have Clemson beating them. So....



It is strange that pretty much no one is counting those games. They should have at least used them as the tiebreaker or something. Especially the 12-seed ones. 12's win their "first rd" games pretty often.

Nah.. not yet anyway. The first year of play-in games on this level, they cant count them. You could have your bracket shot off before the damn thing starts.

Maybe next year or so, when people get used to the First Four..

Been thinking the same. I currently have Duke losing in the final to Kansas, but if Irving is at full strength and the transition is smooth....

I dont trust Kansas to get to the arena on time, let alone win the tournament. Youre a better man than me, Dustin.

I like their talent. And matchups. Plus I think Self is a great coach; always have.

I've actually picked them 3 out of the last 4 years now. 1 right (their title year; picked them over Memphis before the season even began), 1 wrong (last year), and now this year.

Re-did my bracket(s).

We'll see what happens. Looks like in this year's competition the First Four and the Final Four are the same.

Unless others join tonight or early in the morning, see you three in Houston.

Yep. Clemson is not a bad team and should have never had to play in a play-in game at all. They're better than Georgia, for instance. I had them winning both their play-in and this game.

This Butler/ODU game is nice, too..

Really digging the CBS & Turner Broadcasting partnership to show every single game.

Me too.

Ya, the Butler/ODU game should be one of the best games of the entire tournament. Both are very good.

2 good games so far today.

Clemson had WVA on the ropes early. WVA stormed back. Huggins is a hoot to listen to when things are going poorly.

Lots of ticky tack fouls called against Clemson. Changing this game.

Let the kids play.

I saw that game at 19-7 Morehad state

now 23-17.

WVA is getting into foul trouble, lead down to as little as six w/2+ left

Butler/ODU remains tight.
