Instant Analysis

Louisiana is a fair enough draw for the first round, as is Duke if the Volunteers get to the Round of 32.

Louisiana can get to the free-throw line. It ranks 36th in offensive free-throw attempt rate while Tennessee fouls often. The Volunteers rank 245th in this metric on defense. This will not bode well in the first round if the Volunteers do not get hot from deep.
