Generally don't like Notre Dame but think Mike Brey is one of best coaches in college basketball, and he's ex-AE so got to root for him...plus, my brackets.

Little factoid...5 years ago today, CJ McCollum scored 30 as Lehigh, a 15 seed knocked off 2nd seeded Duke. He is currently tearing it up for the Portland Trail Blazers in the NBA.

Princeton is really talented- would have loved to have played them this year.

UNCW is leading Virginia 15-11. It's early, but Virginia worries me since it can't really score.

I actually have UNC-Wilmington playing East Tennessee State in the 2nd round. I don't think Florida is that good either and was seeded way too high. ETSU is a really good team.

Damn...UVa making a big comeback. Their largest comeback win this year is 7 points. Wilmington was up 15.

Re: 2017 March Madness

It looks like Notre Dame would have been a good draw for us. Not playing like a 5 seed right now. I really think we would have had a great chance against these guys in Buffalo.
