NCAA Tournament Featured Game 3/21

Posted March 21st, 2009 at 8:53 am


The round of 32 begins today and for the featured game I’ve selected #7 Texas vs #2 Duke. Both teams were impressive in their first round victories. The Blue Devils go into this game as a seven point favorite and the tip-off is estimated for 8:15 ET. I was going to do another highlight reel however the clip uploading to EASW hasn’t been working. Continue on to read a short recap and check out the stats.

This game had three major shifts of momentum. Texas jumped out to an early lead as big as eight however Duke recovered and outperformed the Longhorns holding a lead between four and seven points until about four minutes remained. Both teams played well down the stretch but Texas hit some clutch three pointers and AJ Abrams was tough to stop from taking it to the rack. Duke had a chance to send it to OT but Greg Paulus missed a three point attempt as time expired.
