UNC men's basketball earns No. 1 seed in NCAA Tournament

Syracuse was 1-4 against the top four seeds in the ACC Tournament with an average margin of defeat of nearly 15 points.

North Carolina takes the top seed in the South.

But, results like Kansas State winning make them more likely to drop out.

When CBS unveils the 2017 NCAA tournament bracket today at 2:30 p.m. PDT, WSU will once again not be part of the festivities.

A year ago Michigan State won the Big Ten Tournament and finished with a 29-5 record but was shafted out of a No. 1 seed in favor of Virginia, which was 26-7.

The ACC made the executive decision to move its league tournament to the world's number one media market because it wanted to be on the biggest stage, and the conference has to be thrilled with the way things have turned out thus far.

Arizona has been close under coach Sean Miller, making the Elite Eight three times since 2011, and OR reached the regional final a year ago and has most of the same group back. United Kingdom played and beat the Tar Heels earlier this season.

SU's five losses against teams ranked 101 or lower in RPI are the most in the group, but four other teams have also lost to a team ranked 200 or worse, including Providence, who did it twice.

Ryan Reese revealed Streaking the Lawn's final bracketology of the season this afternoon, projecting the Hoos as a 5-seed in the Midwest Regional along with Kansas, UNC, Florida and Butler as the respective 1-4 seeds.

This year's bracket will feature 32 automatic bids for conference champions, while the remaining 36 are at-large selections. Furthermore, they are tabbed to meet undefeated UConn in an Elite Eight match-up which would be played at Bridgeport, just up the road from UConn's campus.

So we could see URI and Cal hop into that Last Four In, but any way you slice this Syracuse should not be in the tournament.

By the end of the day, we'll know where all 68 NCAA Tournament teams are headed, who they'll play, and when they're playing. Sure these games were at home, but if you're telling me a team on the bubble could pull these kinds of wins off, you are surely mistaken. Where will the selection committee seed teams such as the Baylor Bears, Duke Blue Devils and Kentucky Wildcats?
