ACC Men's Basketball Tournament bracket released

06 March 2018

Tony Bennett of Virginia was named the league's Coach of the Year and Maye was named Most Improved Player.

Going into what will be its fourth week as the No. 1 team in the Associated Press top 25 poll, U.Va. reached the top spot this season under Bennett for the first time since December 1982. "They have to look at us". The Hurricanes are 14-12 All-Time in the ACC Tournament. Mike Krzyzewski's team is No. 4 in Sunday morning's updated CBS Sports Top 25 (and one) college basketball rankings.

While Notre Dame (18-13) had a bit of a down season this year, they're the "super easy" pick to get past a Pittsburgh team that was completely bad in going 8-23 this season while giving up a whopping 10.5 points more per game than they averaged (62.0 ppg). The 22 wins were the most in a regular season since the 2008-09 campaign (23). With Bonzie Colson now back for the Irish, a loss to them wouldn't be almost as bad as it would have been while a win would be another solid victory that would give VT's resume some more depth and a chance to pick up another high-end resume-leading win over Duke.

This is considered a hard freeze for agricultural purposes, and it poses a danger to frost/freeze sensitive plants. Cooling Off: Once the cold front moves through we'll see drier and cooler air gradually filter into the Valley.

If it comes to a showdown between Virginia and North Carolina State, North Carolina State could give the Cavaliers a run for their money and avenge its early-season loss to Virginia, 68-51. Virginia ranks No. 1 in the metric (No. 39 offense/No. 1 defense), Duke is third (No. 3 offense/No. 10 defense) and UNC is seventh (No. 5 offense/No. 49 defense).

While a win would have given VT a double bye in the ACC Tournament and pushed their seeding floor up, a loss doesn't really change much for the Hokies whatsoever. A big name that they're getting production from is Allerik Freeman. He leads the Cavaliers' in 3-point shooting percentage (44.7), while making 89.3 percent of his free throw attempts and serving as the leader in the backcourt for the best defensive team in the nation.

So what does this mean for the 'Noles who opened up this season with lower expectations set upon them? The Tigers were supposed to be a top-10 team, but being in position for a double-bye is going beyond expectations. Not only did they lose Colson, but they also spent time without Matt Farrell and lost D.J. Harvey for the season. Virginia sophomore guard Kyle Guy suffered a sprained left knee in Saturday's win over Notre Dame, but expects to play in this week's ACC tournament in Brooklyn, N.Y.
