"We felt like we had every opportunity to be a seeded team," coach Dave Pietramala said. "If you look at the numbers, that's the way the numbers bear out. So we thought we could and hoped we would, but you never know. … We're excited to be at home. We've been good at home, and we have not been quite as good on the road. But in this tournament, no matter what, to be able to get to the championship and win one, you've got to be able to win on the road. But we certainly have a tremendous challenge ahead of us with a terrific Duke team."
