3 North Carolina: The Tar Heels will be good, but not the dominant force they were last season.

4 Duke: The back court is thin, but a Kyle Singler-led attack will carry the Blue Devils at least into the second weekend.

6 Maryland: Talent and experience gained from last year's tribulations will get the Terrapins back to the tournament, but not out of the first weekend.

6 Georgia Tech: How seamlessly Paul Hewitt fits all his pieces together will determine how far the Yellow Jackets go.

9 Clemson: Another hyper-athletic lineup; another predictable late-season fade.

10 Wake Forest: Sheer talent alone should get the Demon Deacons back into the tournament.
