UNC and Duke are set for the PK80 event - Duke opens with Portland State and, assuming the Blue Devils win, will face the Butler-Texas winner.
Also in Duke’s bracket: Florida, Stanford, Gonzaga and Ohio State.
UNC will open with Portland and face either Arkansas or Oklahoma in the second round. Also bracketed on UNC’s side: Michigan State, Georgetown, UConn and Oregon.
Duke ties we’re aware of: Greg Paulus works for Ohio State as an assistant coach and Kevin White’s son Mike is the Florida coach.
PK80 stands for Phil Knight, who will turn 80. And for anyone who is interested, we saw a review of his latest book Shoe Dog, which was the biggest rave for a book we’ve ever seen.
