There aren't many intriguing matchups, either. If George Mason beats Saint Mary's, so what? If Richmond or New Mexico were to beat Arizona, so what? They'll get pummeled by an underrated Syracuse team. Purdue–Harvard? Snore. Minnesota–Georgia? Snore. Potential upsets? I could see Duquesne getting by Vandy, and Vermont winning if UConn brings one of its Hyde performances could be fun. Would Coastal over Georgetown even be much of an upset?
All in all, I just don't see much excitement. I hope that's not how it really ends up.
