West Region: Michigan Wolverines (8) vs. Duke Blue Devils (1) Sun. March 20, 2011 2:45 p.m. EST

In their first game of the 2011 NCAA Tournament, the defending NCAA champion Duke Blue Devils (1) lived up to their number one seed billing by absolutely dominating the Hampton Pirates (16) 87-45. Obviously, no one expected the Pirates to be the first team in NCAA college basketball history to knock off a number one seed, but the margin of victory was a surprise as the Blue Devils look pumped up and motivated to make a run at a second consecutive NCAA title.

As it usually does with every round in the NCAA Tournament, the Duke Blue Devils (1) next opponent will be much tougher and could quite possibly give them a run for their money. Even though the Michigan Wolverines (8) aren’t exactly considered to be one of the better teams in the 2011 NCAA Tournament, the Wolverines were able to pull off an impressive win over Bruce Pearl’s Tennessee Volunteers in the second round, 75-45.

With that win over the Volunteers, the Wolverines are a force to be reckoned with and could be the first team to give the defending champs some trouble. As of right now, the Blue Devils have been given the edge once again with a -11 point spread in their favor.
