The NC State Wolfpack has earned an 8 seed in the NCAA Tournament and will face Temple in Dayton Ohio in the East Regional. Â Should State defeat the Owls, they’ll almost certainly face regional top-seed Indiana.Â The Hoosiers will face the winner of the James Madison/LIU game.
Louisville is the overall first seed in the tournament, with a 29-5 record playing in the Midwest Bracket in Lexington. They’ll play the winner of the NC A&T/Liberty winner in their first round game.
Kansas is a #1 in the South. Â The Big 12 Champions are 29-5 and will face Western Kentucky in Kansas City.
Duke is a #2 seed, and will play #15 Albany in Philadelphia on Friday. They could matchup with Michigan State in the Sweet 16, something that Seth Davis of CBS calls a bad matchup for Duke.
UNC is a #8 seed and could potentially meet Kansas in the Round of 32. Â They’ll have to beat Villanova first, and that is going to be a tough opening round matchup for the Tar Heels. Â Should they advance, they could see their old friend Larry Drew II and UCLA. Â Drew, a much derided Tar Heel, transferred to the Bruins squad and has prospered.
Stay tuned for more.
