Its a day later and I’m still in awe of what happened in the Duke game. UCF had them down and out and somehow Zion willed this team to victory. The ball literally sat on the inside of the rim and time froze till it popped out and Duke held on to get to the sweet sixteen.
The way the game ended was true heartbreak for UCF and probably most of the world who all love watching Duke lose. This game turned on the missed alley oop though, UCF had a chance to go up six with under a minute left and missed. Duke then went back down the court to cut the lead to one with a three. I have UNC to win this thing in my bracket and i do feel that this bodes well for that to happen. Although Duke snuck away yesterday with a win i don’t see them getting passed Gonzaga in the final four if both teams get there.
Anyone who says that this Duke team is likeable, I strongly disagree, as long as coach K is at the helm I will never find Duke likeable what so ever. They are however the most athletic team in this tournament by a landslide. They still have a great chance at winning this thing but I just have a feeling their not so great three point shooting will be their demise at some point in this tournament. Yesterday was just a reminder that we all still hate Duke, only they could somehow pull out a win at the end of that game, after UCF was very much deserving of the win. Today is a sad day in sports with no madness after watching hours and hours over the weekend. Were down to the sweet sixteen and their is still a lot of ball to watch though, hopefully we see more games like this one going forward. Lets get this week started ya’ll and well be back to the MADNESS in no time. Cheers
