Duke, Kentucky, Georgetown All Fall in Conference Tournaments
Is Duke still a #1 seed? Did Georgetown lose its chance at a #1 or #2 seed? Is Kentucky even going to make the field.
That’s some of the questions being asked after a crazy evening in college basketball on Friday.
Duke fell in the quarterfinals of the ACC tournament, losing to Maryland 83-74 behind Dez Wells’ career high 30 points. Duke made just 4-25 from three point range.
Georgetown fell in the Big East semifinals, losing to Syracuse 58-55 in overtime. The #5 seed Orange led by nine at halftime and got their first win over the Hoyas in three tries this season in their final Big East meeting.
And, Kentucky fell to #10 seed Vanderbilt in the quarterfinals of the SEC tournament 64-48. Vanderbilt hit 18 of their first 27 shots and held the Wildcats to just 23 first half points. Kentucky will now wait to see if that loss keeps them out of the NCAA tournament.
