North Carolina still out, Arizona State joins field in this week's NCAA Tournament Bracketology


North Carolina guard Caleb Love (2) drives the ball around the defense of Florida State guard Matthew Cleveland (35) during the second half at Donald L. Tucker Center.

North Carolina remains just on the outside of our updated bracketology with only Saturday’s key game against rival Duke left on the schedule before the ACC tournament, needing at least a win against the Blue Devils and perhaps one more victory in the conference tournament to make the 68-team field.

Now up to 19-11 overall and 11-8 in the ACC, good for seventh in the conference, the Tar Heels have won three in a row, including a crucial victory at home against Virginia. That’s been enough to make UNC the first team out of our bracket.

The Tar Heels still have work to do in order to avoid becoming the first national runner-up since Butler in 2011-12 to miss the tournament the following season. UNC is a pitiful 1-8 in Quad 1 games, though it has avoided any bad losses against Quad 3 or Quad 4 competition.
