Atlantic Coast Conference coaches are still reeling from the league's poor representation in the NCAA tournament.

They're using words like disappointed, fair, respect and perception describing how they feel about the ACC having just four teams in the tournament and no No. 1 seed.

Miami became the first team to win the ACC regular-season crown outright along with the tournament championship yet fail to get a No. 1 seed.

The Hurricanes ended up with a No. 2, as did Duke, which suffered an early ACC tournament exit. North Carolina and North Carolina State were No. 8 seeds; Virginia and Maryland will play in the NIT.

UNC coach Roy Williams "didn't think it was necessarily fair'' and Maryland's Mark Turgeon says perception of the ACC suffered with bad early losses.
