"UNC and Virginia seemed like national title contenders all year long and earned No. 1 seeds. Notre Dame and Syracuse weren't quite as favored, but they did receive some luck of the draw. Both avoided top seeds when West Virginia and Michigan State got upset in the first round via some close finishes, and both took late leads in the final minutes of their games to make the Elite Eight. Both are playing perhaps their best basketball of the season.
The ACC deserves all the hype and credit. They've always been one of the best conferences in college basketball, but Notre Dame and Syracuse are relatively new additions with plenty of clout."
