Is North Carolina off the NCAA tournament bubble? The Tar Heels, fresh off a win at Clemson, are projected as a No. 7 seed in Joe Lunardi's latest Bracketology, released Friday; and their resume is strengthening, what with four straight victories, a top-20 RPI and top-15 strength of schedule.
Meanwhile, the ACC is holding strong with five projected seeds: Miami is back to a No. 1, Duke is a No. 2, NC State is a No. 8, and Virginia -- which upset the Blue Devils on Thursday night -- has risen to a No. 10.
