The first week of the 2015 NCAA Tournament is over, and in a span of six days we’ve gone from 68 teams, to 64, to 32, to 16. It’s pretty sad to think that 52 NCAA Tournament games were played this week and now there are only 15 left before the season is over.

Notre Dame's Pat Connaughton with the "I Don't Care That You're Going Pro Next Year" Dunk of the Night

Duke is supposed to be--and usually is--one of the best basketball teams in the nation year in and year out. Coach K tends to get a lot of top recruits--like young Jabari Parker--but all that doesn't matter a lick when you get on the court.
