Duke only won the first game by a few unusual plays, I considered that one luck. I consider the Kentucky loss as luck also. I believe Carolina only lost two games this season and that set them up in my mind to have an excellent chance for a championship this season.

One thing I know about the tournament, is that it's unpredictable. Duke could play with any team in the Nation on any given day, you just don't know what will happen.

NEVER count Duke out. They somehow tend to shine in the tournament and Coach K is amazing at getting the most out of his weaker teams over the years. But I really believe this another year for North Carolina and you know they will be ready and are very seasoned in tournament play. I think the guys from East Lansing could possibly upset everyone's apple cart. Syracuse has a history of managing to choke at the worst possible time, and Kentucky is a tough contender to handle. As for my Buckeyes - you just never know from game to game. I just don't see them at the big dance, but wouldn't complain if they were there. Should be a great tournament throughout, no matter who ends up with the title.
