Duke received the #2 seed in the South region on Sunday and will play their first two games in Greensboro, NC. The second round match up will have Duke facing off against Lehigh on Friday night at 7:15 EST and be broadcast on CBS. The Blue Devils will bring a 27-6 record into the game while Lehigh has a 26-7 record.
I don’t think the guys will have any problems against Lehigh. However, a second round match up against either Notre Dame or Xavier could give the team some trouble.
Many people thought that Duke would be put in the East bracket but the NCAA chose the South with a possible match up against Kentucky if both teams advance that far. One team that I do not want to face is Baylor. They are an athletic type of team that would give Duke all sorts of problems in my opinion.
So with the region full of Kentucky, Wichita St, UNLV, Notre Dame, Baylor, Indiana, Uconn and Iowa State who do you think advances? I’d have to say Kentucky at this point.
