    I would really enjoy a Creighton/AZ matchup. Nation's best O against best D - would be interesting to see which breaks. My bet would be their O.

    All you need to do is neutralize McDermott. Hold him to 5-10 points instead of his AVERAGE of 26, and Creighton will fold like a cheap suit. We have been shadowing and shutting down prima donnas from unbalanced teams all year long. Attach Gordon or Jefferson to his hip...heck double team him if necessary...and McDermott won't score jack. Then we will see how good the "best" offense is...

    LOL, he's only scored in single digits like 10 times in 4 years. Let's slow down here talking about the best offensive player in the nation like you just shut him down with ease.

    He's never faced a defender like Gordon

    The idea of NJ/RHJ/AG on McDermott all game kind of makes me chuckle, dont get me wrong, Doug is a freak, but im betting the length of those 3 guys may bother him some.

    That being said, I think we would see UNC in the sweet 16 which could be tough, theyre playing really well lately, but imo they are going to be seeded higher than a 5 after winning the ACC tourney, you heard it here first

    If someone gave me the choice, Id take this bracket in a heartbeat

    If the match ups stand, UVA has a good chance to upset Creighton...They have a pretty solid D as well.

    Also, if this held true, Id be sweating that 2nd game for Wichita, winner of Pitt/Memphis, not exactly who you want to see in the 2nd round.

    Took a look at how Creighton and McDermott have performed against each team this year based on their Adj D Efficiency on KenPom. The chart below is ordered from left to right according to how good the opponent's D is (labeled on the X asis - the horizontal one for the mathematically challenged). The blue line is how many points Creighton scored, and the orange is how many points per min (adjusting for fewer min in blowouts) McDermott scored. Moral of the story is that, while Creighton's scoring increases as the opponent's D gets worse (in general), McDermott actually appears to score a little better against teams with stronger defenses (also, in general). Now, this could just be driven by motivation, and UofA's defense is much better than anyone Creighton has played this year. The Cats have the potential to shut down a marquee player with their athletes (as they've done all year), but I'm not too sure that anyone has figured out how to shut down McDermott yet. A potential matchup with the Cats sure would be interesting!

    i think if we held Mcdermott under 20 points we'd win easily...i also think if he scored over 20 we'd win easily...unless they have a game like they had against villanova the 1st time and make 20 3's

    NJ on Dougy McBuckets? No way. RJH first. Gordon second. Dougy has 5"s on NJ.

    But Creighton is not even in the top 10 of teams that scare me.

    I think Creighton is not that good but they are dangerous. They have a major capability to go EXTREMELY hot from the 3pt line. I wouldn't like to see us playing vs. such a dangerous team. Looking forward to March Madness

    Why do we debate completely made up match ups?

    Now, the moment the REAL brackets come out, I better see some y'all coming out with some next level sh*t when it comes to opponent analysis (like Creighton & Doug McDermott).
