NOTES:

--Louisville and North Carolina are tied for the No. 4 spot right now, and the tiebreaker process is virtually meaningless right now with six games left for both teams. At the moment, however, the Cards earn the four seed by sweeping their series with a Pitt team that knocked off UNC over the weekend.

--Notre Dame is the two seed because they've played one more game and have one more win than Duke. The two teams split their season series, which means if the Blue Devils had one more win and were tied with the Fighting Irish, they would be the two seed by virtue of their win over Virginia.

--Ineligible Syracuse would have been the six seed in this bracket.

--Clemson has played one more game and has one more win than Pitt, allowing the Tigers to own the No. 6 seed for the time being. The Tigers also own the head-to-head tiebreaker with the Panthers.

--NC State earns the No. 8 seed by way of owning the head-to-head tiebreaker with Florida State ... which is sort of meaningless since they're playing each other regardless.

--Since yesterday's scheduled game was postponed, Miami and Boston College are the only two teams in the league that have played just 11 games. They're playing each other this afternoon at 3 p.m. If the Hurricanes win they'll pull to within a half game of NC State and Florida State for the No. 8 seed.

--Virginia Tech currently owns a half game advantage over Georgia Tech for the No. 12 seed, which, like the 8/9 scenario, matters little since the two teams would be playing one another.
