If LSU defeats Yale they will then go on to play the victor of #6 seed Maryland and the 11 seed play-in game in Dayton between Belmont and Temple in the second round.
Duke's opponent will be a No. 16 seed, either Durham neighbor N.C. Central (18-15) or North Dakota State (18-15).
This season, the Blue Devils played like one of the nation's top teams for long stretches, starting 14-1.
The Duke star blew through his shoe less than a minute into the most anticipated game of the season - a matchup with rival North Carolina on February 20 - and missed five games after spraining his knee as a result of the malfunction.
A detailed view of a basketball during the second round of the 2019 Men's ACC Basketball Tournament at Spectrum Center on March 13, 2019 in Charlotte, North Carolina. That leaves two more top seeds up for grabs, and both the Blue Devils and Tar Heels are in heavy consideration for those spots.
Duke: The Blue Devils advanced to the championship game against 12th-ranked Florida State. Forrest connected on 4 of 7 field-goal attempts, while Kabengele was 3 of 4. It was another sign that Duke, with Williamson back, is closer to being the version that spent a national-best seven weeks at No. 1 in the AP Top 25 this season.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle go it alone
The royal family has kept Markle's exact due date a secret, though she is expected to have the child sometime in April. Russell Myers, Royal editor at The Mirror, explained why Meghan will probably give birth in a private facility.
And that makes the Blue Devils an even more risky team in the big games coming up once the NCAA Tournament starts next week. "We continue to work with Duke, and all of our partner programs, to ensure we are providing the best product for their athletes". "Never. Maybe Villanova previous year but they scored inside as well". Jerome was 2 of 15 from beyond the 3-point line in U.Va.'s two ACC tournament games.
Seeded No. 2 in the East Region and No. 7 in the overall field that year by the selection committee, the Blue Devils were upset by No. 7 seed SC, 88-81, in a second-round game at Greenville, S.C.
Before he returned last night for the Duke Blue Devils, Zion Williamson had a message for all the talking heads who said he should stop playing college ball and focus on the NBA: "Thanks, but no thanks". "Phil Cofer hadn't practiced, he had come back from injury, he was trying to get his health back and didn't practice".
This is the first time that the Tigers are in the NCAA tournament since 2015. All it takes is one game, one game and you can get sent home.
"When the shot left my hand, I could have swore it went down", Johnson said. I could see Syracuse busting some brackets if Tyus Battle can get healthy and they end up being a 10 or 11 seed.
Nonetheless, this FSU team is really good and they proved it on Friday night when they handed Virginia their just 3rd loss of the season. They upset No. 2 Virginia in Friday's semifinals but couldn't recover after falling behind big.
This is a great team that knows how to play together, and even with Zion overshadowing everything else in the ACC Tournament, I still think it was UNC that looked like the best team coming out of the tournament- Especially with how they dispatched our Louisville Cardinals again.
