ACC (Overall ESPN.com experts' rank: 1)

What's good about the ACC: Pretty much everything. You want elite teams? Duke is the national title favorite right now, while Virginia and North Carolina are going to be Final Four contenders. Elite players? One word: Zion. If the projected No. 1 pick doesn't do it for you, his teammates RJ Barrett and Cam Reddish are there. Virginia has its own stable of stars led by Kyle Guy, De'Andre Hunter and Ty Jerome. There's Luke Maye. Nickeil Alexander-Walker. Every night, there's something to watch in this league. Chris Mack's first year at Louisville, Syracuse doing that thing where it backs into the NCAA tournament and then wins a bunch of games, two Duke-UNC games still to come. It's the best league in the country.

What's bad about the ACC: The bottom of the league isn't very good and the middle of the pack is well, middling. There's a significant gap between the nine teams fighting for an NCAA tournament bid and everyone else. Notre Dame and Miami have both fallen off this season, and Wake Forest isn't good at all. Pittsburgh showed signs of improvement early, but the Panthers are really struggling now. The bottom six teams have a combined six wins over teams in the top nine of the league. -- Jeff Borzello

Injuries and thus lack of depth have seriously hurt ND and Miami. They would be much better if they had full squads (at least closer to bubble then they are now).
