Okay, we're kind of screwed by virtue of seeding.
BC, Georgia Tech and Florida State all finished the season tied for 5th at 7-7 in the ACC, but due to the ACC's tiebreaking rules, which I don't totally comprehend, the Eagles are seeded 7th for the ACC tournament. That means we start tonight at 6 PM against Virginia Tech.
If BC is fortunate enough to beat VT tonight, they will face (gulp) Maryland tomorrow night in the round of 8. That loss to Florida State in the season's penultimate game is looking really big, now.
BC needs to win 2 games in the ACC tournament to make the NCAAs, and obviously, it's probably not going to happen. But this VT game is a big one. Making the last 8 is an accomplishment in and of itself, but this game is also important for NIT seeding.
