They've been knocking on the door for a bid the past few years.

Puncher's chance they get it this year, actually. They thumped UNCW two weeks back, and have wins over CoC and Elon, three of the top four teams in CAA.

Problem is, they're good at home. S-U-C-K on the road (2-11?!). CAA tournament is in Charleston, not Willamsburg, but, it's not like W&M doesn't know how to beat the top of the conference.

Now, if only St. Francis (Brooklyn) could figure out a way to get to the tournament...

Jawdropping, isn't it? 04-jawdrop Duke missed once but that's because Alphabet Soup was injured and an interim coach had to take his place for half the year.

He wasn't injured, he took time off because he saw that he didn't have a good enough team that season and didn't want the losses reflected on his record.

Yeah, the SOS is always good, but the quality wins aren't shining through. So far, it's two against Minnesota, one against Michigan, one with Northwestern, and Wichita State. Of those, Minnesota and Northwestern look the strongest to get there without the assistance of AQ so far.

0% chance they keep Izzo out of the Tournament. Look for MSU to get an easier bracket as well.

Coach K was in pain and needed the medical attention (surgery). The loss of one of the all-time greats Grant Hill hurt. He put Duke on his back and took them all the way to 94 title game. After he left, they weren't nearly as talented. Loss of leadership from Grant to NBA and Coach K out was too much for that Parks, Meeks, and Blakeney led 95 team. Not to mention the schedule was pretty strong...Wake had Duncan, Georgia Tech was top 25, North Carolina was great, Virginia and Maryland were really good. UConn and Michigan were top 25 and UCLA was ranked number 2 when Duke played at UCLA

He chose to have surgery, that's the difference. He pulled the same nonsense this season once Duke started performing poorly.

27 Kansas
21 Duke
19 Michigan State
18 Gonzaga
18 Wisconsin
--- HUGE DROP ---
6 North Carolina
6 Cincinnati
6 VCU
5 Iowa State
5 Wichita State
4 Arizona
4 Oklahoma
4 Oregon
4 Villanova

There's a few borderline teams but at this point, there's a pretty decent chance that everyone on this list that isn't Oklahoma will extend their streaks.

11 programs that have made the NCAA 20 of the last 25 years.

Duke, Kentucky, North Carolina, Kansas, UCLA, Ville, MSU, Whisky, Texas, Zona, Cincinnati.

If not for the huggs fiasco and gutting of the program I think Cincy would have been 25 for 25 or 23 of 25, etc.
