It was not a good day for the one and done teams.

 

Duke had lived dangerously the last two games. It’s tough to win that many tight ones.

 

Especially when you don’t shoot it that well to begin with.

I can't believe the media made negative comment towards the Duke program!

Actual quote from CBS's Jim Nantz "The one and done era is not bringing championships" other than the 2012 Kentucky and the 2015 Duke teams.

It really does seem like Duke has been on borrowed time since the end of their game against UCF and I figured they wouldn’t be challenged like that again and was clearly wrong.

 

Late February and March this year was just weird.

 

Duke, Tennessee, Kentucky and Gonzaga all had bad losses or injuries that changed the landscape of college basketball even before the tournament started. Teams like Michigan State, Auburn faced similar adversity but rose to the occasion. Just a wild year for college basketball.

 

Hell, back in August UK looked like the runaway favorite well before the season even started.

Not gonna lie. It sucked watching UK lose today and I loved seeing Duke lose.

 

With that said. IMO, one of the best Elite 8's I can remember watching in a long time.

 

I agree I think this is probably the best overall one (even though the Cats lost) for just great basketball games that I can remember.
