As much as I like JJ and Sheldon Williams, Duke wont win the championship. NCAA analysts have Duke going to the championship which is where they will be, but they all have UConn winning it all. A like Duke more than UConn, but when it comes down to it, I have to go with the Huskies too.

Why do so many categorically say Duke won't/can't win it all? If Josh McRoberts continues his assertive play as he did against
Boston College, I like the Blue Devil's chances. UConn is a great team, they probably do have the most overall talent. If they do pull it out, it will be the first team ever that lost it's first conference championship game.

I too, am getting sick of everyone simply saying Duke cannot win the championship. To me they are a strong team with no weaknesses that make them fodder for any other team entering the tourney. I like UConn's chances, make no mistake, but I dont see any team so devistating Duke cannot run the gauntlet and add another National Title to Coach K's resume.

How can duke be the top ranked team in the final poll?! They lost 2 games to end the season. All uconn loosing in the big east tournament proves is how much better the big east is than the ACC, not to mention that Syracuse was playing for their tournament life. The favoritism of duke is sickening.

Games are not won by which team is the best athethically, but by how good the coach is. Coach K has proven through the years that he is best. He will continue to do so through the tournament. His mind will win it all.

The ACC is not even to be mentioned in the same sentence as the Big East. Yes they have some good squads in the Big East, but the ACC is so deep in tallent its not even a statement that shoudl have warranted a response Scott.
