The Duke Blue Devils have their eyes on the Sweet 16 with the Yale Bulldogs in their way.

The Duke Blue Devils survived a very pesky and better then expected North Carolina-Wilmington 93-85 to advance to the Field of 32. The Seahawks led by three at the half before the Blue Devils went inside and dominated the foul line. UNCW sank shots at 43% and stayed alive with 14 more looks at the basket with an 11-23 effort from distance while Duke buried shots at nearly 54% with a 31-14 advantage at the stripe. Grayson Allen and Marshall Plumlee were too much to handle with 23 points apiece with a combined 18 rebounds. Brandon Ingram added 20 points and nine boards while Matt Jones chipped in with 12 points and five yanks.

USA TODAY Sports

The Big Dance is always exciting when the underdog puts up a fight and even better when they win and the Yale Bulldogs pulled off the first surprise with a 79-75 win over the Baylor Bears. The Bulldogs held off a late Bears charge with solid free throw shooting. Yale held the Bears to 44% from the floor while countering at 53% and 13 more free throws to negate the Bears 19 more shots. Makai Mason saved the Bulldogs with a game high 31 points and six pulls on 9-18 with Justin Sears tossing in 18 points on 7-10. Brandon Sherrod netted ten points while Sam Downey chipped in with eight points and seven boards.

Yale pulled off the first real upset of the tournament but I think Duke will prove to be a tougher out then Baylor although the spread is about the same. I don’t think we see another upset although I’d love to see it but I don’t think I can ignore the points here even though this might be a stretch...
