Kansas, Pitt, Oklahoma, UConn fell, teams that had their shot at #1 damaged or gone. Assuming UNC and Memphis (despite the objections) are entrenched in the #1 seeds, who gets them now?
Memphis is still a 2 seed in my eyes. If Duke wins the ACC tourney, they're a number 1. Louisville is a number 1, UConn is still a number 1 and maybe still Pitt

NO WAY with 6 losses can Duke be a #1 seed even if they win the ACC. They're a solid 2 or 3.
Although it is highly unlikely, Duke could be a #1 if the won the ACC. That would most likely mean they would have to beat BC, Wake, UNC. Couple that with their recent streak of 5-1 down the stretch with only loss coming at Carolina. The committee always takes into account how the teams are over there last 10 games.
Also,Duke has the 2nd strongest RPI or strength of schedule, only behind Pitt. Duke has more quality wins than Michigan State and Louisville along with a much tougher schedule. As for Memphis, they shouldnt even be inthe discussion. Their only quality win was against Gonzaga. They were 1-3 out of conference.
Again, a long shot, but if Duke were to win the ACC, they have a very strong case, even with 6 losses.
