Last year, only six teams from the ACC made it to the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. Only one team was a top three seed and only two teams were top four seeds.
Only one team made it past the second round, and that was Duke who eventually went on to win the National Championship.
Last year was a down year for the ACC, but this year will be different. North Carolina will be back and make an impact this year with a great recruiting class adding on to a more mature team.
With the improvement of most teams in the ACC, expectations for the ACC to have a great year and get more tournament bids are high.
