2023 will undoubtedly be the year of the ACC downturn. Usually one of the strongest conferences in college basketball, the ACC has only five teams that in 2023 he’ll be in the NCAA Tournament to make it big.
What’s more, the top seed from the ACC is the conference regular-season champion Virginia Cavaliers, just 4 seeds. The Big 12 has four of his teams seeded higher than his higher-ranked ACC teams. Wow.
Only five ACC teams are headed to the NCAA Tournament this year, and one of them (Pittsburgh) has played in the first four games and is essentially on its way to the big bracket. The SEC and Big Ten each have eight teams participating in the tournament.

ACC Teams for the 2023 NCAA Tournament
Virginia Cavaliers (4 seed) Duke Blue Devils (5 seed) Miami Hurricanes (5 seed) North Carolina Wolfpack (11 seed) Pittsburgh Panthers (11 seed)
Duke defeated Virginia for the ACC Tournament Championship on Saturday, March 11th. Virginia looked like the stronger team all season, but the Cavaliers lost Ben Vander his plus to a fractured hand. It’s going to be hard for the Cavaliers to run without him. I was able to pull it off.
Did North Carolina and Clemson make it to the NCAA Tournament?
Unfortunately, no, North Carolina did not qualify for the NCAA Tournament this year. Clemson also did not appear. Both teams appeared to be on the field in the second half of the season, but a stumbling block in the second half prompted the Commission to add the others.
North Carolina and Clemson were on the line to make the field, so they need to sting for their fan base, especially North Carolina. The Tar Heels lost to the Kansas Jayhawks in the 2022 NCAA Tournament as runners-up, giving him a double-digit lead in the game.
You can watch the NCAA Tournament ACC teams on various live streaming platforms including FuboTV, Hulu + Live TV, DIRECTV, YouTube TV and Sling TV.
