He's got the Zion Williamson down.

According to one thing I saw today, yes.

I'm going to say this makes sense. Duke is the best team in the nation, imho, with Zion playing. UNC played them to 1 point on a neutral court. UNC has been excellent after getting past the first month or two of the season and the team coalescing.

Oregon drubbed Washington int he PAC-12 final, so there's a bid being stolen. Bracketology says NCSU is out now, due to that. And somehow Az State is in the tournament, too.

We'll see

At this point, I kinda hope, assuming UNC doesn't win it all, that Oregon does, just to fuck with everyone :)

As soon as they announced Va Tech as a #4 in the same region as Duke, I told Christina that UNC would be a #1... otherwise they would have tried to keep those teams further apart.

OSU was not a #1 seed. Stunning! A travesty! :D

We're an 11 that plays Iowa State. I wouldn't count on us for the upset.

Clemson/NCSU/etc in the NIT...

But, uh...
The NIT continues to experiment with rules in its tournament. Some changes in the NIT have eventually seeped its way into the mainstream of college basketball, such as the 30-second shot clock and four-foot restricted-area arc.

The NCAA playing rules process operates on two-year cycles, rule changes can be approved this May, and could be in effect for next season. There will be four rule modifications for the 2019 tournament:

The 3-point line will be extended by approximately 1 foot, 8 inches to the same distance used by FIBA for international competition (22 feet, 1.75 inches).
The free throw lane will be widened from 12 feet to 16 feet, consistent with the width used by the NBA.
The shot clock will reset to 20 seconds after an offensive rebound instead of the full 30 seconds.
Team fouls will reset at the 10-minute mark of each half for the purpose of determining free throws and one-and-one free throws will be eliminated. Teams will shoot two bonus free throws after the fifth team foul of each 10-minute segment. Additionally, teams will be awarded two bonus free throws after the second team foul committed under two minutes remaining in each half if that foul occurs before the fifth team foul of the segment. In each overtime period, team fouls will reset, and teams will shoot two free throws beginning with the fourth team foul or the second team foul committed under two minutes remaining if that comes before the fourth team foul of the overtime period.

This hurt my brain.

While it would be fun to meet UNC in the Elite 8, I'm really, really certain that's not going to happen.

ACC claims top 3 of the AP poll, possible the first time ever that's happened to end the year.

I have heard some bitching about that.

I don't really care. It'll all pan out in the tournament. I did, however, suggest to someone that Virginia should be banned from ever getting a #1 seed.

:shock:

I only did a family bracket this year. I used to run the one at work, but got a new job. They do something different. You pick names out of a hat, and get the results of those teams.

Family: We each did 2 brackets (last year everyone went very chalk, so I thought this would help them mix it up). Winner picks dinner + dessert for a family night out

Not UNC.

A well rested Zion is going to be a tough out.

If I didn't have to pick Duke, I think Gonzaga, Sparty, or UNC would be my pick.
