March Madness 2011 Prediction: Duke and UNC

Well Duke pulled out a great victory over UNC at home 75 to 71 after being down most of the game. Nolan Smith as anyone could have predicted was right in the middle of the comeback and he has to be front and center at the top of player of the year lists now, he had 34 points in all. Sophomore guard Seth Curry added 22 points off the bench, his season average is only 8 so big game for him. One of the positives for UNC is that they competed extremely well with stud freshman Harrison Barnes having only a lackluster night with 9 points, 6 boards and 2 blocks. Junior Tyler Zeller led North Carolina with 24 points on 10 of 14 shooting. If you missed this game you missed a good one. Our fearless March Madness 2011 is that Duke will be playing in the National Title game while UNC is back and will be making an Elite Eight run as they grow better every game. Games like this help both teams in their development towards March, and help fans feel the power of college basketball before then.
Bonus early and fearless March Madness prediction: Nolan Smith is MVP of the tournament.
