NCAA Basketball: ACC Conference Tournament-Florida State vs Louisville Nicole Sweet-USA TODAY Sports

After swaying to and fro in bracketologists’ projections for the better part of the season, the horsing around appears to have abated for Florida State basketball, which for the second straight day finds itself as a 10-seed in Joe Lunardi’s projection of the NCAA Tournament field.

And while the ’Noles may have stabilized some and many are downright bullish about their chances, an opponent of note is now being forecast opposite FSU for its first-round gig: Texas A&M. The 7-seed Aggies could join the Seminoles in steering their program north, to the West region’s Detroit venue, where Lunardi predicts these two may lock horns.

Presently, Florida State is one of nine Atlantic Coast Conference teams that Lunardi has lassoing an at-large bid to the Big Dance, including Louisville snaring the very last spot. On the other side of the bubble, Notre Dame and Syracuse are among the first four to get the boot.
