But the more I play this game, the more I realize there are rarely dominant teams. Often match-ups make a difference. Or teams just have off nights. Congrats to everyone still playing. Should be a good final four!
I'll act as a counter jinx.... I seriously doubt Longwood wins the NT this year. I mean, let's assume he has the best team - how often does the best team win it???
I'll take the field vs. Longwood any day. You never know when some chump with a 6 seed is going to limp into the NT with a 18-10 record and rattle off 6 straight...
That said, he's my conference mate, and as long as I'm not playing him, I'll be rooting for him and the other power house CVAC schools.
Yeah, I beat them by 17 earlier in the season, so sometimes there's just random chance. Was also up by 10 with 9 minutes left, then our entire team couldn't make a shot. Very strange ending.
Either way, mduncan has a great squad, and they deserve the final four. He used some excellent gameplanning by moving his best player to SF, having him go against my worst starter.
