Can we also acknowledge that the AAC received 4, yes 4, bids to the tournament! Add in 2 NIT bids and that’s 6 teams playing meaningful basketball in late March.

Should help the league financially if a few of us advance to later rounds.

ESPN accidentally leaks the Women's bracket, lol. UCF women's will be a 12 seed (far too low IMO) an play Arizona State.

Having both men’s and women’s playing post season is an awesome time for the program! If it wasn’t for UCONN, we had a real shot for the ladies title.

Nice add-ones to an NY6 bowl bid.

VCU for sure is beatable, They got bounced in the quarterfinals of their conference tournament to Rhode Island kinda easily? They better beat VCU or we didn't belong in the NCAA tournament. Everyone excepts Duke to crush UCF as they have 3 of the top 4 picks in the upcoming NBA draft.

I respect our conference so I have Duke, Gonzaga, Cincinnati and Houston as my final 4 with Duke over Houston in the championship game. And If Temple beats Belmont, I got Temple in the sweet 16.

We are a much better basketball league than we got credit for this past offseason. Cincinnati and Houston could both go very far.

VCU is a really good defensive team, but pretty average offensively. The good news is they're not a great perimeter shooting team as they like to score inside, which plays into our strengths with Tacko.

If Allen and BJ can handle the backcourt pressure and Tacko can stay out of foul trouble we should have a great shot, as we should be able to hold VCU to a pretty low score. They play almost exclusively man to man defense so expect a big night for Tacko and Smith.

so the women's team was the last team in for the tournament, that's insanity given our RPI of 15 and our record this year. Saw someone on another board point that if you take out the losses to UCONN we're 26-3. Last team in? Harsh.

UCF lost on the road to a 25-7 Cent Mich.
UCF lost by 5 to a 24-8 Syracuse
UCF lost on the road to a 15-15 Tulane.

So one mediocre loss and 4 good losses, coupled to 26 wins; a team that went 11-1 at home and 12-3 on the road.

You are correct that an #11 is very odd. A quick look has more than half of the Lady-Knights wins coming against eventual winning clubs, so there is strength in the schedule.

Excellent victory.

They’ll justifiably be huge underdogs to Duke, but with a 5:15pm Sunday tip on CBS leading into 60 Minutes, there’s a legit chance that game will be the most watched game in UCF history for any sport.

What a huge victory tonight.

I had zero expectations prior to the game, and ucf delivered in a fantastic way.

Congrats to the team and coaching staff!

And thank you!

Is it best for Tacko to guard Zion or Collin/ Chad? Zion could get Tacko in foul trouble.

Ucf keeping it interesting so far against duke with a couple of minutes into the second half. Keep tacko out of foul trouble and force them into jumpers they may have a shot at winning
