Stat of the day

Here is the stat that I keeping going back to while wondering why the #1 ranked team in the RPI is a 2nd seed. (Even worse than that is the fact that Duke is matched up in the same region as the #2 ranked team Pitt.)

Duke - 10 wins versus teams in the NCAA tournament.
UConn - 8 wins
UNC - 6 wins.
Memphis - 2 wins

Duke had an incredible regular season, but wasn't rewarded in the bracket. Lets hope this team is talented and lucky enough to make it to the Final Four anyway.
