I mentioned this in one of the threads yesterday that Jay Bilas picked UConn to not only go to the Final Four, but also the title game. The surprising thing to me about that particular pick was he had UConn topping his own Dookies in the Elite 8. On its own, I would say his pick isn't too surprising. I like Jay as he seems to do a pretty good job of being objective and has a good knowledge of the game from what I can tell (granted my level of knowledge is pretty low, so take my opinion on him with a grain of salt.)
What is surprising is what I saw when I went to ESPN's tourney page and glanced over the other experts' picks. Up at the top of the list was Jay and his picks. UConn still there. Good to see he hadn't changed his opinion yet. Scrolling down, there is one more person with UConn in the Final Four, Jay Williams.
Huh? Another Duke grad putting UConn in the Final Four...over Duke!? Not only that he goes by "Jay" as well!
So, I ask you fellow readers of TheUConnBlog...
What is with both of ESPN men's basketball analysts named Jay from Duke doing taking UConn over Duke?
