Villanova is the real deal once again this year. They just stomped the number 10 team Xavier. I think they will have to be having a off game for anyone to beat them this year.

It's crazy, the parity. Michigan State barely won in OT against Rutgers. I see any of the top 10 teams in the Final Four.

Yeah anyone can win. I dont see UVa winning out in the ACC. They have a lot of competition and every game each team is playing their best to knock them off the thrown. I'm eager to see the UVa vs NC State game this Sunday. NCS just beat Duke by 11 points so they will have a ton of confidence going in.

I like Virginia...except when they play Duke lol. I don't expect Virginia to lose to NCSU. Virginia is holding opponents to an average of 53 points. State is on the verge of being good, but their win over Duke was a slam on Duke's porous defense than on their offensive efficiency.

I thought Duke was going down tonight but they had a great come back and won.

Duke is going to be difficult to deal with if they get serious about defense. Bagley gets all the press, but Carter is just as good.

I think the Cavs have a serious shot at the ACC title this year, their defense is rock solid. Their baseball team is always good, as with other sports with UVA...everything except football.

First time I'm seeing West Virginia play this year, that Konate kid is very impressive.

WVa has won the matchup at home the last four years but its always been a battle. They just blew a 14 pt lead and lost it.

Duke has 5 who can score > 15 on any given night, but Bagley and Carter are rebounding machines.

Last night the #2 player committed to Duke, giving them numbers 1, 2, 3 and 10. They'll be loaded again.

They are only going to get better on defense. The Virginia game will be interesting...#1 offense against the #1 defense.

We will find out Next Saturday!. UVa has Clemson to deal with on Tuesday at home then they have to go to Duke wich is a tough place to win but not impossible.

Clemson will not be Virginia. Mark my words.

I have a ton of work to do next Saturday, build bunk beds for my daughter's, replace a hot water heater. If I can get away I'll probably go to the game. Virginia at Duke will be a great game.

My favorite team (right now, that could change in March) is Xavier, and it all comes down to the play and hustle of their guard, J.P. Macura. This kid was a beast on Saturday against Seton Hall, the first time Xavier has beaten Seton Hall since joining the Big East. Not sure when that was, but no matter.

Also, Bill Murray's son is an assistant at Xavier, so I've got that going for me.

Which is nice.

The Hokies have a huge upset going down if they can hold on until the end.
