No. They got ripped off in the conference semi-finals.

But they did get into the dance as a #10 seed.

My school is a #2 seed playing a #15 in the first round. Should be a cinch, but, in the tourney, anything can happen.

So dismayed by the ending of the UM v MSU game yesterday, but it was a good game of basketball play from both sides.

Jon Teske (Michigan's 7'-1" center) is a grad from my City's public high school. He's doing his hometown proud.

The most important question is: what will be the final score in the inevitable Duke/Mich State matchup?

some people in my fair city follow Vermont because 3 brothers play for them.

Is your school conference champion ?
My school went 11-21 (6-12 in conference play) so no. They are a terrible basketball school though. Good at football.

That said, I'm glad Duke won the ACC, and more importantly beat UNC. Zion Williamson is an absolute freak of nature. If the championship matchup somehow ends up being Duke/UNC, NC will explode.

I think my Orangemen will choke early as they have played so inconsistently this season - thinking MIchigan or Marquette maybe in the end winning it all, still thinking about it

It will be Tobacco Road Showdown part 4 with Duke beating UNC by 2 points. no team will have more than an 8 point lead.

Michigan and Michigan State will both be out after losing to Duke.

*BTW, I don't like Duke, but with Zion Williams, they are just too good.

So far I've only lost 3 teams in my bracket: Belmont, Nevada, and St. Mary's. I had St. Mary's beating Purdue in the Round of 32 though so that kind of sucks. I always have hopes for Nevada and they never pull through.

I did get Minnesota, Baylor, and Murray State right. I may have slept on Murray State though, they look really freaking good! I could see them beating Florida State, they definitely struggled against Vermont.
