This will be almost 12 straight hours of basketball. UK-WVU lead things off with an interesting stat. John Calipari is 1-8 versus Bob Huggins which means UK doesn't have a chance. That Richmond-Morehead St. game means there will be at least one double digit seed in the Sweet Sixteen. The Pitt-Butler games might be the most interesting match-up of the day. Oh and if you want to know whether your basketball conference is too big? When your member schools end up playing each other in the round of 32. UConn might be the team that could knock Duke off in the regional final if they continue to play as well as they did in the first game.
