Bracketology: Three ACC bubble teams left out

Virginia Tech and Miami are trending up, but No. 1 seeds will await them in the second round. A total of 10 ACC teams make the cut with Wake Forest, Clemson and Pittsburgh falling just outside the field.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Wild night on the bubble. Syracuse got the biggest win of the night, beating Duke. Providence and Seton Hall both with huge wins, over Creighton and Xavier, respectively. Wake Forest and Illinois State kept their respective hopes alive, so did Vanderbilt. California had a major chance, but blew a lead to Oregon. TCU and Kansas State both suffered losses, with the Wildcats' home defeat to Oklahoma State potentially looming large. Tennessee's loss to Vandy hurts. Pittsburgh and Georgetown probably both totally done after their losses.

Flawless run for the ACC

Per ESPN's BPI, four of the top five game performances last week resided in the ACC, speared by a near-perfect score from UNC in its rout of UVA. Duke's win over UVA is also noteworthy because it was given less than a 30 percent chance to win.

Pitt is the first team since the ACC went to 18 league games three years ago that has had to play back-to-back road games at North Carolina and Duke (in any order). The Panthers are handling the challenge. This won't happen too often now with unbalanced schedules. A number of ACC schools won't play UNC and Duke on the road in the same season, let alone consecutively.

Duke's Jayson Tatum starting to assert himself with their initial 8 second half points after just two attempts in the first half. Tatum shooting 29% from 3 on the second but has made both his shots from behind the arc this half

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Duke shooting just 16 of 57 from 3-point line in its last 3 home games, including just 3-for-13 in first half vs Pitt. In Krzyzewski's last game before his hiatus, Blue Devils made 16 of 31 3s against Georgia Tech

Pitt appears to be using same offensive strategy it used vs Carolina milking the clock to keep total number of possessions low in the game. Panthers didn't attempt a shot until less than three seconds on shot clock on their first four possessions
