Zlatan Ibrahimovic gives one-word response when revealing NCAA bracket — March Madness

Duke Blue Devils forward Zion Williamson and Duke Blue Devils forward RJ Barrett during the ACC College Basketball Tournament game between the Florida State Seminoles and the Duke Blue Devils at the Spectrum Center on in Charlotte NCNCAA Basketba

The wait is over and let the madness begin!

In a shocking oversight Monday afternoon, ESPNU inadvertently displayed part of the women's bracket on its home page - nearly four hours before the NCAA selection show was scheduled to air.

But starting with No. 1-seed Duke's first-round game in the NCAA Tournament against No. 16-seed North Dakota State on Friday at 7:10 p.m. The Big East champs haven't been seeded this low since 2013.

The bracket is out and the First Four is here.

Don't be surprised if Chicago ends up trying to trade down if they end up with a pick outside of the top four, especially if they fall in love with somebody who slips in the draft.

Overall, they're outside the top 50 in both offensive and defensive efficiency, and they have a few big weaknesses.

Due to their weaker schedule, some analysts are unsure about how far they'll go.

Iowa State landed the 6-seed in the Midwest Region.

The AP voters largely agreed with the NCAA selection committee at the top. Plus, like Arizona, they have been inconsistent so it could make for some exciting basketball. And they're at their best when loose in transition or attacking the glass. Their iconic fight song echoes strong through my head as I type.

Now they play Colgate, the Patriot League tournament champ. "He is going to elevate and shoot over you", Moses said. But let's not forget, MI was boasted as the most complete team in the nation early on in the season due to their strong defense. Michigan has been outrebounded in five of its six losses by an average margin of more than nine boards per game - including being more than doubled (46-20) in the second of three losses to Michigan State.

OK, ok - that was spoken like a true blind fan.

The Duke Blue Devils have won five of their last six games and are fresh off an ACC title.

Trump Backs Public Release Of Mueller Report
Mueller had been a member of one of Trump's golf courses but reportedly ended his membership over a fee dispute. Trump again Wednesday insisted that "there was no collusion, there was no obstruction, there was no nothing".

If I had to put money on it, I'm going with Duke.

Nike, which posted more than $36 billion in revenue in 2018 alone, drew widespread scrutiny earlier this year after Williamson's sneaker exploded during a highly anticipated rivalry game with the Tar Heels. Coach K's 94 tournament wins are also the most.

Maybe the sustained feeding of Williamson on offense from here on out has been part of coach Mike Krzyzewski's secret plan.

Experts will tell you don't only choose 1-seeded teams. Behind Virginia and UNC, the list included No. 11 Houston, No. 13 Purdue, No. 16 Virginia Tech and No. 17 Kansas.

Favorites do not always win. Perhaps the pressure of being the favorites gets to the players in a tight game. He is by far the best player in NCAA and every time he plays it's jaw-dropping experience to see the things he can do (his dunks are insane).

Gonzaga is the only team that's beaten Duke when they had Williamson, Reddish and Barrett healthy.

It's a challenge coach Roy Williams said he welcomes, even though many around the country are doubting his team's chances for making a deep tournament run. Personally, I love seeing the underdog teams make it to the finals.

By winning the SEC tournament, Auburn rose eight spots to No. 14.

Prediction: History will not repeat itself this March. The Duke Blue Devils do have depth issues and I'm not as high on them as others seem to be, but the National Basketball Association talent is there and a team this top heavy in elite talent should mop the floor with the Bison.

Led this year by all-American sophomore Rui Hachimura, the Zags enter March Madness having won 21 of their last 22 games. The 68 team tournament will host 67 games over 19 days jam-packed with intense excitement and talent.

There are a bunch of intriguing possible scenarios for Duke in the national championship game.
