    I agree with most of the votes. The glaring one I disagree with is MD beating Duke getting knocked off by Mark Reynolds dissing Buck on the high five.

    That was the last ACC regular season match up between MD and Duke, and just a simple missed high five.

    Seriously? I guess that’s the beauty of the BSMY tourney…upsets can happen.

    Nice work guys!
