Diamond Heels Get #3 National Seed

RPI baby!

In case you are wondering how UNC got such a high seed despite going 1-2 in the ACC Tournament is a #1 ranking in the RPI at the end of the regular season. Plus, who knows how much the committee took the ACC Tournament into consideration especially given what a mess it was after the rain blew the schedule up. In the end Virginia and Florida St. may have benefited but that is probably it.

Here is the full bracket for NCAA Tournament. Regional play will open this weekend at various campus sites.

As a national seed UNC has home field advantage all the way to Omaha providing they keep winning. The first order of business will be the Chapel Hill regional where UNC is seeded #1. The other teams in the regional include #2 Florida International, #3 James Madison and #4 Maine. The Heels will play Maine on Friday at 6:00 PM on Friday. In all likelihood Patrick Johnson will get the start versus the Black Bears giving UNC an excellent chance of starting the regional off with a win.

Not to put the cart before the horse but should UNC win the regional they would face the winner of the Cal State Fullerton regional which is made up of CSF, Illinois, Kansas St and Stanford.

    I was surprised we got the #3 seed. I thought Vanderbilt, the #6, would get it, and we would get the #6. Overall, I’m happy with our draw. I think we have a great shot of making it to Omaha.

  • Andy In Omaha

    So, anyone from the board coming to Omaha if the Heels can make it this year?

  • qcheel


    thinking about making the trip to Omaha, but I don’t know if it will be the same with the new stadium.

  • Capt. ButchRoy

    I’m definitely gonna try & make it to Omaha if the Heels get there. I’ve been dying to go since my brother-in-law, Chad Flack, told me how amazing it is.

    …and yes I know i shamelessly dropped a name if anyone can pick it up for me…

    Go Heels!

    I suppose UNC fans will have to remember this gift the next time the ‘Heels get screwed in the basketball bracket.

    If I’m reading the bracket right, it looks like GIT is the #15 seed (since they’re paired with #2 Florida). I guess while it helped the ‘Heels, the ‘Jacket’s RPI was apparently ignored.

    Great seed! Excellent chance to make it to Omaha. We must have a dependable bullpen in the clutch. Go Heels!!

  • Andy In Omaha

    Well, IF UNC makes it back to Omaha (and I miss Rosenblatt like the vast majority of Omaha residents), then drop me a line. It would be nice to put names with faces!
