TV: Today's games on ESPN2 (FSU is also on Ch. 38); Wednesday's two early games on ESPN, two late games on ESPN2; Thursday-Saturday games on ESPN

The favorite: North Carolina is the top seed but coming off a tough game against Duke.

Other contenders: At No. 4, second-seeded Virginia is ranked higher than the No. 7 Tar Heels and many believe the better team, especially on defense.

Looking at Florida State, Miami: FSU is the 11th seed and unlikely to be a factor, but the Hurricanes have great guard play and could knock off one of the favorites. Neither Virginia, which won the regular season last year, nor Duke, which won the national title, made the 2015 ACC title game.
