Duke is now the No. 7 team in the nation in the eyes of the NCAA men's basketball selection committee, which revealed its top 16 teams up to this point in the season Sunday afternoon on CBS.

There are four ACC teams now in the top 16, including No. 1overall seed Virginia. The Wahoos - 23-2 on the season, including a 12-1 record in the ACC - were the No. 1 overall seed in the bracket.

Virginia may not be the No. 1 team in the nation when the Associated Press poll is released on Monday, but the Cavaliers are No. 1 where it counts. Its strength of schedule is rated No. 94 in the country.

VAR causes mass confusion AGAIN as Fiorentina denied penalty against Juventus
The 23-year-old scored the Turin giants' first goal as he curled in a left-footed free-kick in the 56th minute on Friday. And with five minutes of normal time remaining, Juventus again responded to the danger in devastating fashion.

The reveal provides insight into the selection committee's thinking exactly a month before Selection Sunday, on March 11.

Villanova was No. 1 in the East, Xavier tops in the Midwest Region and Purdue No. 1 in the West Region. Duke, Texas Tech and Ohio State joined Villanova in the East, to be played in Boston. The South Regional semifinals and final are set for Atlanta, the city in which Virginia last won a regional championship to reach the Final Four, that in 1984.

With Duke, Clemson and North Carolina also included, the ACC comprised 25 percent of the top 16. Meanwhile, Virginia Tech jumped to 56th from 67th, upgrading its chances of earning a tournament bid. It was the Hokies' ninth Quadrant 1 game and fourth Quadrant 1 win. I certainly would have been excited, but again, it's always about quality of play. 4 seeds in the South region.
