West Region: Duke Blue Devils (1) vs. Hampton Pirates (16) Fri. March 18, 2011 3:10 p.m. EST

Last season the Duke Blue Devils (1) flew relatively under the radar during the NCAA Tournament as no one expected them to go very far with what was thought to be nothing more than a mediocre college basketball team. Fortunately, despite many people doubting their ability to contend with the best of the best last year, the Blue Devils were able to win yet another NCAA title under Coach K.

This season the Duke Blue Devils (1) will head into the 2011 NCAA Tournament as the number one seed in the West Region as they try to do something that not many teams have been able to do in the past by winning a second consecutive NCAA title. Even though Coach K’s squad might have some trouble with the best teams in the West region like the San Diego State Aztecs (2), UConn Huskies (3), Texas Longhorns (3) and Arizona Wildcats (5), the Duke Blue Devils (1) will have a pretty easy first round matchup against the Hampton Pirates (16).

As of right now, the Duke Blue Devils (1) are heavily favorites to come out on top in their first 2011 NCAA Tournament matchup with a -22.5 point spread. Despite the fact that they will almost certainly destroy the Pirates on Friday night, the spread is a bit too high in my opinion and bit too risky.
