March Madness is in full swing and today is Selection Sunday, which means CBS will air a special Selection Sunday show to announce the 68-team field that will participate in the 2017 NCAA Tournament.
You could have said the same thing about last year's bracket. Neither team was harmed here, but it does speak to the madness of March.
The report added that Duke has a good argument that its losses weren't all that bad, which can help given the fluid nature of the selection committee. In the three games where Carolina has played Duke, a foul has been called on UNC 71.5% of the time that the Blue Devils had the ball, compared to only 36.8% of the times that Duke fouled Carolina when they had the ball. That's where most of the drama should unfold on Sunday.
Look at their conference strength of schedule. I think, with so many possibilities, they will be out by Sunday.
Kansas (28-4) can still make a case for the overall No. 1. It just feels like the momentum is shifting too much toward Duke for that final No. 1. In other words, more predictable teams create more predictable tournaments.
In the Norse's first four years, the team was 42-75, and they went 9-21 last season. Did Jim Boeheim's team do enough this time around? The Wildcats had regular-season wins against Baylor and West Virginia, but they don't have the strongest RPI.
Bracket Matrix indexes 117 predicted brackets and, as of Thursday morning, had Syracuse averaging as the next-to-last at-large team (being listed in 69 of those brackets). The Tar Heels' potential path to the Final Four starts in Greenville, S.C. on Friday as the top seed in the South Regional.
The list of teams that have the potential to knock out Duke or Carolina out of the tournament isn't very long, but it's led by the usual suspects - Kansas and Kentucky.
The Horned Frogs will next face Iowa State on Friday night in the Big 12 Tournament semifinals at the Sprint Center in Kansas City. At 19-15, Jamie Dixon's squad likely needed the win over the Cyclones.
The Jayhawks lost their Big 12 Tournament opener without suspended star Josh Jackson.
The Tar Heels are making their 48th all-time appearance in the NCAA Tournament, second behind Kentucky's 56 appearances.
With the conference tournaments wrapping up around the nation this week and weekend, now's a fine time to assess the postseason hopes for our state's Division I teams.
