    Great game. I really thought Duke was going to get it. That Allen shot looked down. They just seemed to unravel some in the last couple of minutes in OT.

    I thought Duke's last possession was terrible. It was Grayson Allen and no one else was on the court. But of course, it almost went in.

    Duke had 2 tough breaks. I’m not sure how that Allen shot at the end of regulation doesn’t go in. Then the blocking call which was just atrocious. Duke fans will have a lot to complain about the next couple of days, then they’ll realize they have the 3 best players in the country coming in next year and they’ll be alright.

    Saw a tweet that there is just no way is true...Duke hasn’t made a Final Four as anything but a 1 seed in 24 years, since 1994? There’s no way that’s accurate is it?

    I really can’t stand Bill Self. Something about that guy irritates me but I just can’t put my finger on exactly what it is.

    Any chance any of the guys come back to make a super team?

    That's correct.

    They've been a #1 seed 13 times. They've made the Final Four seven times when they get that seed. They've failed to make it twelve straight times when any other seed. They made the Final Four five times between 1988 and 1994 when they were below a 1 seed, but those are the only times.

    While Duke did not have the record of UK's 2015 team and Kansas is better than Wisconsin was but to me this is has to be just disappointing. I think they had without a doubt the best talent in the country. It just goes to show that the teams with most talent don't win.

    Great game! Villanova has to play better than today to beat Kansas IMO. I look for it to be a battle from start to finish like today.

    Why did Duke quit going inside, they were scoring virtually every trip and I believe they win if they continue driving and feeding the post.
