Wouldn't be a S16 matchup, would be an E8 matchup.

I dont speak math very well but 64-iu/davidson, 32-iu/tt-c of c, 16-iu/uk-lipscomb-ucf-va tech.  Have i been counting the bracket wrong for 35 years?

Where are your numbers coming from?  I found this list:

http://insider.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/hollinger/statistics?page=2

Looking at your numbers, I'm guessing where Carson closes the gap is at the free throw line where Juwan is horrible and Carson is very good.  Still, there would be a lot of players between Juwan and Carson in the rankings even with Juwan's abominable free throw percentage included.  2.5 points is a pretty big gap when the 50 players on that page covered about 1.7.

The bottom line is, Carson is very inefficient on the floor but compensates for that somewhat by being very efficient at the free throw line.  He's no college player of the year though...surely we can put that joke to rest.

Nope, I was clearly wrong. :jumprope:

Eastern is simply a bad basketball player, no 2 ways about it.

Nojel's mom would disagree with you.

Well she is his mom, but I don't care. One of the least efficient players in the Big 10 offensively.

Thanks. I've been there but didn't scroll enough apparently.  As expected, Juwan's FT% (44%) is killing his efficiency.  Carson is almost 90% from the line...one of the few places he's efficient.

Always wish for an easy draw in March, but they won't give it to IU. When tournament time comes, we'll be placed in the same region with other blueblood programs (before Elite Eight) to drive the TV rating up.

Not easy to be efficient, when:

1) CMP's offense doesn't fit you, 2) CMP won't run plays for you, 3) all of your teammates are worse than you, 4) people say mean things on message boards...

The only difference is you would have to rewrite it, but this time with a bunch of grammatical and spelling errors. Make it so nobody has a clue what you are trying to say.

Hopefully Nojel has a different attitude than his mom. She made her son look bad. This reminds me Troy Williams' mom.

Oh trust me...this is way worse.  At least Troy's mom shut up after the outburst.  Nojel's mom is the gift that keeps on giving.

Updated Lunardi bracket on ESPN.  Has us as a 5 seed in the East region.

One thing I find that is odd with this projection is that he picked Wofford to win the southern conference over Furman which is ranked #25 right now.

Agree.  Makes no sense.  Maybe Wofford has a higher NET rating or something.

This bracket exercise is just for fun, but in March please no Duke on our way to Elite Eight. Not saying we should get to the Elite Eight though.

You're assuming Duke would beat Rider.

Being placed in a group with Virginia as the 1 seed and Nevada as the 2 seed would be pretty swell.

Especially if Virginia loses in the first round again

You know they want an IU UK matchup if possible.

With the way they do regional seedings now Kentucky butler Indiana notre dame Louisville and Purdue will all be in the same side of 16 if they can make it that way. Look at the past few years. They definitely get matchups they want.
