Today's Friends:

ROLL BLUE DEVILS!  We need Duke to come back and beat Pitt.  They trail 45-33 on the road with 16 minutes left at this writing.

ROLL PHOENIX! As much as I hate to root for a team from Green Bay, UWGB can help us by beating Valpo.

ROLL DUCKS!  Oregon needs to beat Washington.

ROLL TIGERS!  Root for Memphis over Tulsa.

ROLL PURPLE EAGLES!  I wouldn't count on it, but Niagara upsetting Monmouth would be nice.

ROLL COUGARS!  Washington State upsetting Oregon State would help.  Also thanks to Houston for helping us out with a big win over UConn.

Unfortunately, we already have some bad news.  Seton Hall beating Xavier was a huge blow.  St. Joe's also beat St. Louis.
