Duke vs. UCF in NCAA Tournament: March Madness prediction, pick, odds, line, how to watch, live stream, watch online
UCF center Tacko Fall is every bit 7-foot-6. Duke forward Zion Williamson’s playing weight is in the ballpark of 285 pounds, a weight that would make him the second-heaviest player in the NBA if he were on an roster right now. Together, they make for one of the most unique and thrilling individual matchups of the 2019 NCAA Tournament when No. 1 seed Duke faces No. 9 seed UCF on Sunday afternoon in the second round.
Fall, meanwhile, is a lesser-known sensation who is a star in his own right. For starters: He’s 90 inches tall. That’s the height of 12 No. 2 pencils, if you were to stack them up one on top of the other. That’s almost two Tracy Wolfsons. That’s the literal size of his importance to a UCF team looking to do what has only been done four times this season: beat Duke.
When: Sunday at 5:15 p.m. ET
Where: Colonial Life Arena in Columbia, South Carolina

Two weeks ago, the 23-time grand slam champion retired from her third-round Indian Wells match against Garbine Muguruza citing “extreme dizziness and extreme fatigue,” which tournament organizers later identified as a virus.I am disappointed to withdraw from the Miami Open due to a left knee injury,” said Williams.
It was an amazing experience to play at the Hard Rock Stadium this year and would like to thank the Miami Open for putting on an amazing event. I hope to be back next year to play at this one-of-a-kind tournament in front of the incredible fans here in Miami.
Williams, whose last title came at the Australian Open in 2017, was scheduled to face China’s Wang Qiang on Monday. Recently-crowned world No. 1 Naomi Osaka suffered a surprise defeat to Taiwan’s Su-Wei Hsieh, going down 4-6 7-6 (9-7) 6-3. Osaka split from her coach Sascha Bajin last month just 16 days after winning her second consecutive grand slam title at the Australian Open.
Petra Kvitova, who lost to Osaka in that Melbourne final, progressed in Miami after defeating Donna Vekic in three sets, 6-4 3-6 6-4. In the men’s draw, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic recorded opening victories against Radu Albot and Bernard Tomic respectively, but the tournament’s second seed Alexander Zverev was knocked out by Spain’s David Ferrer.
Serena Williams has withdrawn from the 2019 Miami Open as the result of a knee injury, the tournament announced Saturday. Williams defeated Rebecca Peterson in the second round of the tournament and was set to play 18th-seeded Qiang Wang in the third round Sunday.
“I am disappointed to withdraw from the Miami Open due to a left knee injury,” Williams said in a statement, per the New York Times’ Ben Rothenberg. “It was an amazing experience to play at the Hard Rock Stadium this year and would like to thank the Miami Open for putting on an amazing event. I hope to be back next year to play at this one-of-a-kind tournament in front of the incredible fans here in Miami.”
The Miami Open was her second tournament since losing to Karolina Pliskova in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open in January. Williams also competed in the BNP Paribas Open earlier this month, retiring in the second set of her match with Garbine Muguruza. The 23-time Grand Slam champion cited an illness as her reason for withdrawing.
In her three-set victory over Peterson, Williams acknowledged she wasn’t playing up to her best.
“What was a little frustrating today is I know I can play so much better, but I just wasn’t able to produce it today,” she said, per the WTA’s official site. “But that’s the beauty of fighting, getting through the matches where you’re not playing your best, then coming out the next time and just doing better.”
Last year, Williams competed in the Miami Open and didn’t return until the French Open. Depending on the status of her knee injury, the 37-year-old would likely at least want to play in the Madrid Open, which starts May 6.

The first round of the 2019 NCAA Tournament
is now in the rear-view, but there is little time to assess everything
that happened during the thrilling two days that opened the event. The
Round of 32 tips off shortly, jump-starting another exciting slate of
March Madness action. Every team still in the field believes it can cut
down the nets at the Final Four in Minneapolis this year, but the
pretenders will be separated from the contenders over the first weekend.
Once the second round concludes, the Sweet 16 for the 2019 NCAA
Tournament will be revealed.
March Madness has certainly lived up to its
moniker again this year, as the opening days of the tourney had
everything a fan could wish for. It may be best remembered as the year
of the 12-5 upset, as Auburn was the only No. 5 seed to advance beyond
the first round in 2019. The Tigers narrowly escaped an upset, needing
New Mexico State’s game-winning buzzer-beating attempt to fall short in
order to survive. Liberty, Oregon and Murray State—the trio of 12 seeds
that did advance—will all try to become this year’s Cinderella story by
dancing into the Sweet 16 with a victory this weekend. Speaking of
Cinderellas, UC-Irvine was the lowest seed to make it to the second
round this year, as the 13-seeded Anteaters knocked off No. 4 Kansas
State on Friday to pull the biggest seeding upset of the tourney thus
There is potential for plenty more upsets
in the Round of 32, especially with seven double-digit seeds in action
over the next two days. On paper, it’s one of the most lopsided second
round slates in recent memory, as only two of the 16 games have a point
spread of three or fewer points. In comparison, five contests have lines
in the double digits, although anything could happen during the 2019
With that in mind, here’s a look at the
complete March Madness 2019 schedule, TV info, live stream site and
updated odds for every game
