Notes - Duke is a number two seed because they have an extreme deficiency of interior. You might say that they shut Tyler Hansbrough but the kid had 28 points and 18 rebounds. In the Duke-UNC game, UNC was also missing All-American point guard Ty Lawson. He is a major component of their offense which created difficulty in getting those "must get" baskets. His absence all hurt Wayne Ellington who shot 3-14 from the field and 0-6 behind the arc. Ellington is a top 5 shooter in the country and he couldn't find a rhythm without Lawson. Lets see what happens on March 8th when Ty Lawson is there.
