Wow! That was surprising. Both Virginia and North Carolina get Number 1 Seeds, while Michigan State does not. I haven’t had the opportunity to see Oregon play this season, so I can’t comment, knowledgeably, on their selection, I have watched the others. Since Virginia lost their conference championship and Michigan State won theirs, Michigan State should have gotten a Number 1 seed.
Colorado and UConn will be a very interesting game. Congrats to the Huskies, by the way, on winning their conference tournament in such authoritative fashion after playing a game with, essentially, three halves just a couple of days before. UConn may don a glass slipper this year. It sounds weird to call a school like UConn Cinderella. Not only do they have an excellent chance to beat Colorado, I really think they could knock off Kansas in the second. If, that is, they don’t run out of gas.
I love Duke. They’re my team, even when they’re awful, but they definitely are not a 4 seed, in my opinion. I think Baylor is going to kick our ass. That, of course, is if we get passed UNC-W. If we play that first game the way we played Notre Dame, that is, blowing a 16 point lead, we might not.
Texas and Texas A & M will be a fun second round match-up with one of them versus Oklahoma in the Sweet 16.
