Troy got nothing to feel bad about . . . last I checked, the front of those jerseys still said Duke . . . They'd have most likely beat any Sun Belt team they'd have faced.

Horrible 1st 2 days of the tournament. The only real Cinderella left is freaking Middle Tennessee

I may not watch another game.

Whatever man. We were only down by 10 midway in the 2nd quarter. We preformed about to be expected against Duke. We just ran outta gas in the end.

Keep hating tho. Because when we win the league again next year you can sit on here once again and complain.

I'm not hating.. but I'll just say to me UTA won the league while Troy won the tournament. Wasn't Troy the 7 seed? Troy played well at the end when it mattered and played its way into the NCAA Tourney. Congrats on that, but UTA won the league this year.

We were the 6 seed.

UTA did win the league but at the end of the day we still get the sbc trophy and crown just as they do. They just happen to be regular season champs.

With everything we have returning coming back we will likely be a 20+ win team next year as well.

What? Duke is the Vegas favorite to win the whole thing.

Yes, I was kind of curious about this myself. Troy finished several games behind UTA who returns a bunch, including Hervey, and behind a few other teams who return most of their players. I'm not sure how they magically become league favorites

Getting hot for 4 days in March does not make you league favorites. It's why I don't care for the tournament to begin with. Just give the regular season champ the bid and go on, or create a tournament that gives them a big advantage.

Their Conference Record this season was 11-7 . . . That's an off-year for Duke.

I do give them credit for getting "hot" at the right time.

If you replace the lost productivity of 38% of your scoring, 27% of your rebounding, 46% of your assists, and 41% of your steals, and win over 20 games, you more than likely will end a little better than a 6th seed.

We finished 14-6 in the final 20 games. We were Doing Good well before the tourney started as well. Had we played as well through the whole of the season we would have finished higher than a 6 seed.

I've heard this both ways... we won the regular season in 2010 but WKU won the tourney. WKU fans will claim 2010 they were SBC champs as I had a debate with one of their fans Years back. Either way both schools will have a SBC champions banner in their arena somewhere.

We may or may not be the preseason favorites next year but I think they will have us top 3.

RE: TROY vs Duke gameday thread
don't understand all the hate towards Troy, they kicked ass in the tournament, and got the job done while everyone else failed. If your going to be upset, look at your own team. Now, as far as the NCAA tournament, I didn't expect them to win but I thought they would atleast give Duke a better game. Anyway, the important thing now is MTSU gets beat today, cant have a CUSA team making a run in the tournament.
