According to the box score, Maryland shot 34 FTs, Duke 21. How favorable to Duke could the refs have been?
If Ryan Kelly and WY come back, Florida matches up very well with Duke. Young would really bother Plumlee if he plays smart, Florida would probably have a strong rebounding advantage and an athletic advantage in the back court that would really cause Duke problems.
Getting a #1 seed in a region with Duke as the #2 seed would be a good draw. But Duke won't even make it to the Elite 8 so its mostly a moot point.
