    Would be great to see the Shockers cutting down the nets in April.

    Agree, Toddler, UVA did blow a chance at a #1 seed; not sure they would have gotten it, but now they're down to a 3 last I heard. The ACCT may tweak NCAAT seedings.

    UVA lost out big time. They had a chance to move to #4 and possible #1 seed.

    WOW, Duke dropped after losing the previous week. Now that's shocking, it didn't happen the 2 previous times.
