North Carolina Likely Secures First Overall Seed with ACC Championship

Clemson's just not going to beat UNC in the state of North Carolina. The Tar Heels might not lose to anyone in their home state the rest of the year as well, as I think they've clinched the #1 overall seed and a home court advantage playing in Raleigh then back to Charlotte should they reach the regionals.

Wayne Ellington might be the most hated many on Clemson's campus, racking up another 24 points. That's a total of 88 points this year against the Tigers this season.

I've had it in my mind that I wouldn't be picking the Tar Heels to cut down the nets in San Antonio, but with the way Ty Lawson is playing lately, healthy and quick as even, they're back into the equation.

While we've got 2 hours left until the Selection Show, who do you think will be the #1 seed and in what order?

North Carolina 86, Clemson 81

Who should be the overall #1 or who will be?  UNC will be, but UCLA should be.  UCLA has 20 wins against the RPI Top 100, including 11 against the Top 50.
