The Lady Sun Devils had a tough opening round game against UCR, but I've got them going to the Regional Finals against my Dukies. They'll wear down both Louisville in the 2nd round and then Vandy or Bowling Green in the round of 16. They may give Duke a tough time in the Regional Final Duke starts tightening up (like they've done historically). Their game is not pretty, but it's effective.
KU Looked the best this weekend and I think Self's ties to the MVC will serve him well in preparing for the SIU matchup in the round of 16. If Pitt upsets UCLA, then KU is in the Final 4 for sure. If they meet UCLA, it will be tough since UCLA will be well rested and the San Jose arena will be pulling for them. I like the defensive intensity Howland brings to the Bruins, but never feel safe with a freshman point guard.
Bruins experience from last year and home-court advantage will be alot to overcome, but KU's got the talent to do it.
