    This wrecked my bracket, but I must say that I am quite pleased with VCU's win over Duke. :D

    Duke, like my beloved Kentucky Wildcats, was just an ordinary team this year.

    That said, both did pretty well in the two strongest conferences.

    I actually picked this one. Duke is slumping and has a short rotation. VCU plays the press and has physical guards. Gotta love Duke going down.

    UNC had their hands full for a bit with EKU. Tobacco Road has not had an easy night, though the Heels are going to pull away I think.

    I had VCU in nearly every bracket I submitted.

    No fair! You made your picks after doing actual research. Don't you know you're supposed to pick with your heart, not your brain?

    My pianist (a Duke fanatic) will be in mourning this weekend - she'll probably be wearing black.

    I have yet to pick a NC team to lend my support to. I've told my church that may support was for sale to the highest bidder - no takers yet!

    I am glad to see Duke fall so early, especially to a team in the Colonial conference. Go Heels!
