That said, your closing statement is spot on. Odds are KY will be at best an 8 or 9 seed, even though they probably deserve one of the play-in spots.
I had not realized they lost on Saturday. 17-8/6-6 isn't pretty. Yeah, if they lose more than 4 more and have a poor showing in the SEC tourney, they will be a bubble team. Lunardi still thinks they are in the NCAA tourney.

The top 16 seeds were preliminarily released yesterday; no real surprises but they have UNC as a 3 seed (I think the committee suffers from recency bias, I see UNC as a 4 seed). No way Duke will get a 1 seed at this point unless they win out in the conference and ACC tourney.

True statement. The way my Wildcats are playing, they'll be lucky to make the NIT this year...

well Im happy to say for the first time since I was a junior in HS that the UVa Cavaliers are ranked number 1. I will be even happier if they can beat Miami tomorrow night. I dont feel good about it since they shot so poorly saturday, we will see.

You should be happy! Great feat!

I think Virginia will take care of business against Miami.

well you were right Miami wasn't as close as I thought it would be, UVa changed their game plan it seems. I noticed they didn't take as many 3pt shots as they usually do. Im looking forward to the Duke -Tech game tonight, should be a good one.

At FSU vs Clemson and we finally won against a ranked team. Last week against Virginia during the second half was disappointing to say the least. Go Noles!

Yeah that was a exciting end. I was glad to see them comeback like that.

I was going to go but it was my son's birthday. But we did have it on at home.

Good game. I am getting optimistic again. They played very well without their best player, and zone is really working for them. They really stopped Tech's star player, and as importantly, they limited Tech's rebounding.

If they improve with the zone, Allen stays hot, and Bagley gets back in, THAT is the national championship-caliber team.

Also, great Clemson-Fla State game, as was 'Nova-Providence.

Duke is really playing some good ball now, they could go all the way.
