Pregame: One eye on the Duke game
It would have been a whole lot easier to ignore the TV if second-seeded Duke (featuring his son, Austin) had been taking care of business, but 15th-seeded Lehigh hung around all night and pulled off the upset in Greensboro, N.C.
It's fair to say that Rivers' bracket is in disarray. On Thursday, he offered a big vote of confidence for Missouri (featuring Phil Pressey, son of Rivers' former Boston assistant Paul Pressey), only to watch 15th-seeded Norfolk State stun the second-seeded Tigers on Friday afternoon.
Reporters tried to help Rivers out by limiting questions to a mere 123 seconds before letting him sneak back to his office (Duke had a slim second-half lead at that point). Rivers probably wishes he stayed out in the hallway outside the locker room.
