Exactly - I saw Wally in that game against us - he is exactly like Adam Morrison. Except he didn't play on a school that got the pub (or ESPN contract) of Gonzaga, so no one paid as much attention to him.

aaand yea, i'm taking morrison, without much thought. that's not to say that roy isn't a good player in his own right, and by no means do i think that adam morrison is the next larry bird. but morrison is simply a better player.
Agree to disagree. While I realize my bias probably favors Roy to some extent, my rooting interests also mean that I've watched them both play all season long. Based on what I've seen, plus the numbers, I have a hard time picking Morrison over Roy.

Ah, George Washington, that was great. Gonzaga is a three, right about where they should be. I'm pissed that we're in UConn's quadrant - I don't want a repeat of last time we faced them in the tourney... Ah well, no guarantees we get past Illinois.

I do have a hard time seeing UCLA as a 2, but that might be just because Washington beat them twice this year. Sadly, I do think Gonzaga has a reasonable chance to get to the Elite Eight, or even the Final Four with those matchups. On the other hand, I'd put even money on them not reaching the Sweet Sixteen.

Memphis beat Gonzaga by a healthy margin earlier in the season, and that was with Adam Morrison scoring 34. I don't think Gonzaga isn't going to improve on that.

Boston College should be higher than a No. 4. Tennessee should not be a No. 2.

but then again they only lost to uconn by 2...

gonzaga is a team that could get bounced in the 2nd round to indiana or could catch fire and end up in the final four, and i wouldn't be surprised either way.

There are so many teams like that this year. UConn losing in the 2nd round wouldn't be a complete shocker.

As much as it would kill my brackets, I would love to finally see a 16 knock off a 1.

hate to say it, but the way the bracket is set up, I think Duke can waltz into the championship game

Don't tell that to Jay Bilas, he thinks they've got the toughest road. Then again, I'm sure he's not the slighest bit biased being a Duke grad.

seeing how they handled texas earlier this year, Iowa is their toughest challenger in Atlanta

moving on from their I see Gonzaga as a mild threat, and maybe Memphis, but I have them getting upset by Kansas, so that won't be a factor

am i the only one who, when jay bilas said "uconn could have a lot of distractions playing in D.C." thought to himself "hmm, there's a lot of lap tops in D.C., ain't there?"
