Bracketology: UNC remains a No. 9 seed

North Carolina, despite an ugly loss at NC State in which the Tar Heels fell behind by as many as 28 points, remained a No. 9 seed in Joe Lunardi's latest Bracketology, released Tuesday.

Around the ACC: Duke, despite losing the No. 1 ranking, remained a No. 1 seed; Miami, the last undefeated team in ACC play, rose to a No. 3; NC State, which lost at Wake Forest before beating UNC, fell to a No. 5; and Maryland hung on in the predictions with a No. 12.
