DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- This might be the Atlantic Coast Conference's best chance to finally end its long title drought at the College World Series.

The league hasn't produced a national champion since Wake Forest in 1955.

This season four ACC teams came to Durham for the league tournament that begins Wednesday with legitimate shots at one of the top-eight national seeds in next week's NCAA tournament.

All eight teams here are in the top 22 of the latest NCAA-released RPI. No other conference has more than five.

North Carolina State coach Elliott Avent calls the ACC tournament "Omaha East." And veteran Florida State coach Mike Martin said Tuesday that all eight teams have the talent to make it to the College World Series.
