Midwest No. 1 – Virginia Cavaliers (Overall: 24-6, Conf: 13-5)
Virginia’s arguably the best team in the ACC right now. That’s because the Cavaliers play extremely well on defense (59.6 points allowed per game) and they own a highly-efficient offensive game (70.7 PPG). Plus, they have a guy like Malcolm Brogdon, who was recently named as the ACC Player of the Year, to lead them. Brogdon gives the Cavaliers not just someone who can score in bunches, but also a lethal go-to-guy who’s never afraid to take the last shot. In the regular season, Brogdon is averaging 18.4 PPG, 4.2 RPG and 2.8 APG while shooting 41.1 percent from the three-point line.

Virginia makes it to the Elite Eight before falling off eventually.
