Notre Dame remains a No. 9-seed in Joe Lunardi's latest bracketology update
Notre Dame is still projected to be a No. 9-seed in the NCAA Tournament, according to ESPN’s Joe Lunardi.
Lunardi updated his projected bracket on Friday morning. The Fighting Irish would play Seton Hall in the first round of the midwest bracket if this predictions holds true.
That could work out exceptionally well for the Fighting Irish, as Chicago is hosting the midwest regional this year. If Notre Dame could find a way to get to the second weekend, it would likely get to play in front of a very favorable crowd in the Sweet 16 and Elite Eight.
Notre Dame is still in the hunt for the ACC regular season title. The Fighting Irish are tied with Duke at 12-3 overall in the conference.
The Blue Devils still have multiple tough games remaining, including vs. North Carolina at home on March 5.
Notre Dame, meanwhile, still has to go to Wake Forest and Florida State. It ends the season at home against a much-improved Pitt team. The Panthers dominated North Carolina in Chapel Hill earlier this week.
Notre Dame has never won the regular season title in the ACC.
Tipoff at Wake Forest is at 1:00 p.m. ET on Saturday.
