The bigger picture.....

So just how many NCAA bids will the ACC get? The Roanoke Times' Mark Berman breaks it down.

Berman's list:

Safe bets (make that "sure" bets): Wake, Carolina, Duke;

Hopefuls: Maryland, Miami and Georgia Tech;

Long shots: Virginia, State, Virginia Tech

Clemson and Florida State will just have to win the tournament to get in.

Further south, AJC's Jack Wilkinson takes a look at the bigger NCAA picture, with a lot of ACC mixed in. (OK, it couldn't be any other way.)

Wikinson's "most likely" top four seeds? Illinois, Carolina, Kansas and Boston College.
