    Guard play wins your tournament games. Dominic James is just as quick as Ty Lawson and more polished as a PG.

      Not an expiranced team? Who cares? Do you remember the Team Roy won with in 2005? I think 6 or 7 of the players were underclassmen, and they still won it. ABout Hansborough, I agree 100% that he may not be the same with the Mask( thank you henderson), but if he is everyone better watch out. Also, remember this is comming from a Duke fan too.

      What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
      they get smoked.

        Maybe on the offensive side of the ball..Lawson will break Jame's ankles all day.

          James-McNeal-Mathews is one of the top gaurd trios in the country but I don't have them beating UNC.

          • I'm as happy as I could be for overachieving UVA's draw. Higher seed than I thought as well.

            Early final four (I'll flesh through it a bit more and come up with picks again later):

            Florida vs. Pittsburgh
            Georgetown vs. Texas A&M

            with the final being

            Georgetown over Florida.

            But that's early and I'll think over it some more.

                I think Pitt will knock off UCLA, Kansas, I don't know, still debating.

                Aaron Gray can manhandle Lorenzo Mata, that's the big factor in my eye.

                  This post is from November 14. With the brackets the way they are, it is still possible. I believe!

                    Pitt? Really?

                    Here's my final 4.... Kansas vs Maryland
                    Georgetown vs. Texas A&M

                    final Kansas vs. Texas A&M. Kansas wins.

                    • I just think Maryland is too inconsistent to beat Florida, particularly, in the backcourt.

                      Dunno, Kansas seems to have such a clear path ... but I'm just not a big fan of that squad for some reason. It wouldn't surprise me that, if VA Tech and So. Illinois both win, the winner of that game gets into the elite 8.

                      I'm not a huge fan of UCLA. Very good team and very beatable. I think Pittsburgh can handle Wright State, but Duke should give them a scare. As much as I like Duke ... and while they do have a lot of raw talent and getting back Gerald Henderson will help big time, I'm just not sold that they can do it. But ... to be honest, it wouldn't surprise me that, if Duke is playing consistently (and in particular, Paulus) that Duke makes a surprise run there. McRoberts played real well down the stretch, and Henderson was emerging, with Paulus getting more consistent. But it's hard ... as that team was so up and down at times, and a veteran team like Pitt, dunno.

                      That said, those are my early picks.

                        Florida has found their swagger and it'll take a top tier team's best effort to take them down. Maryland would have NO chance

                          Um no they weren't. Sean May, Juwad Williams, David Noel, Raymond Felton, and Rashad McCants were all upperclassmen.

                          And yes TT, explain to me why you went 8-8 in the conference and why you lost in the ACC Tournament...I'm all eyes.

                            I agree with Maryland and the Duke comments. However, as I have stated before I feel that the key to Dukes success is Henderson's play more than anyone else's even though he may not be a starter. As for maryland, I hate them with a passion, but they just really seem to be hot right now and playing together really well. Not to mention the coaching ailities of Gary.

                                Just do one bracket!!! Doing several is like cheating, but if you're gonna put Duke in the Elite 8 you can throw that bracket out
