ok, we all know that these two teams are both undefeated, but i just saw a poll on espn where a majority (40%) of the people said neither of these teams will make it to the final four

 

So, do you guys think they are really the two best teams in america, or are they only there because of their records against powderpuff opponents (most of the time, at least)

 

i think that these are two of the top 5 teams in america, but not #1 and 2. And yes, at least one will make the final four, if not both

of course both teams can make a case for #1, but stanford's is much stronger as the had to beat arizona, whereas St. Joe's biggest test was Dayton, even though they only won by 2 today, Dayton is a better team han UMass

 

but neither are #1. Duke is

duke finishes #1 every year

and usually choke on it big time in march

 

at least they get the chance to blow it in march (damn tar heels :banghead )

Even if they lost all 3 they would still have a good shot at getting in the tourney. I guess there is nothing to blow though if you are a mid level seed, so you can only go up from there.

the next 8 days will decide their fate

 

if UNC can beat NCSt tomorrow and beat Clemson in the middle of the week, well be there in march

 

if we cant go 0-3 nest week and lose in the 1st rd of the ACCs, then were NIT Champs

Nope. Not before the game either. And what an awful game it was, for both teams. I don't care if both teams play good defense, 30% shooting and a scores that can't break the 50 mark in overtime?!

 

Fun little fact: There is only one team in all of the 14-member Big East that has more than half of their wins against average-to-great (RPI 1-100) teams, Providence. All the others packed up on cupcakes.
