For the first time in the illustrious 61 year history of the ACC games for the basketball tournament will be played on Wednesday and followed by a Scotty McCreery concert. Behold what conference expansion has wrought.
|#12 Wake Forest vs #13 Notre Dame||1:00 PM||ACC Network/ESPN2|
|#10 Miami vs #15 Virginia Tech||3:30 PM||ACC Network/ESPN2|
|#11 Georgia Tech vs #14 Boston College||7:00 PM||ACC Network/ESPN2|
From UNC's perspective, the game of interest is the first one. The winner of Wake Forest and Notre Dame will face the #5 seed Pittsburgh on Thursday for a shot at the Tar Heels in Friday's quarterfinals.
The second game is only interesting because Virginia Tech's only two ACC wins came against Miami. The Hokies finished 2-16 in ACC play and the win over Miami on February 15th was the Hokies' only victory in the present calendar year.
In the last game of the day, Georgia Tech faced Boston College. It should be absolutely craptastic.
Picks: Notre Dame, Miami, Georgia Tech.
