Editor's note: Bracketology was updated with the latest advances of the NCAA tournament through games played on March 15.

hanging on No. 1 seed line at Friday's start to vault early and retrieve top overall seed on the latest Saturday shelf project.

This violent transfer resulted from a major ACC tournament semifinal win in North Carolina, a team that lost it twice in regular season without Zion Williamson, and a loss of Virginia in a surging Florida State team at other ACC semifinal. Remember, the Duke suffered Virginia twice and based on committee committees because of some losses coming from Williamson recovering from injury.

But it must also do how close the No 1

will be to this year's seed fight. A game can flip-flops the positioning of braket teams – even if everything stays in 1-line.

Did Gonzaga have gone missing in Saint Mary's at the West Coast Conference tournament final, it's likely to be a general no. 1 because & # 39; Zags had the best score of NET to go to very few losses. The UNC was upset at the Duke on Friday, which will be three wins against the Blue Devils to join star credentials.

ABOUT IT *: THIS: Here is hope for a fourth showdown of Duke-UNC


what gets interesting now is to determine which number. 1 seed selection committee may be lower. A lot depends on what happens in the semifinal SEC tournament semifinal between Tennessee and Kentucky. If any of these teams continue to win the SEC tournament, Gonzaga can be a unique team. However, North Carolina is in the mix falling on No. 2 lines, Virginia's latest loss in FSU does not affect its overall résumé and the Duke is sufficient to stay in No. 1 in Zion back to the fold.

No. 1 seed: Duke, Virginia, North Carolina, Gonzaga

Last four: Temple, State of Ohio, Belmont, Arizona State

-Greensboro, Xavier, Georgetown
