    OK, the bracket isn't set quite yet, and we are currently sitting at #10 with BC and Miami yet to play their final game.

    Miami to play at VT on Friday night
    BC to play NCSt on Saturday

    Not exactly sure on the tiebreaker rules but I assume head to head. We have the tiebreaker against BC and Miami is not likely to beat VT so a #10 seed looks likely. That would most likely have us playing the winner of Saturday's ND/Pitt game. Pitt is on a long losing streak, so it is unlikely that they will pull this one out. And we split against ND this season.

    Chances are good to move on to the 2nd round! There it looks like we would go up against the #7 seed, either Syracuse or Louisville. Syracuse plays Clemson and L plays UVA, so it looks like the 7 will be Syracuse.

    Go Jackets!

    According to the bracket on Bleacher Report, if we are #10, we play #15 at 2 PM Tuesday. If Miami wins and BC loses, we play #14 Tuesday at 7 PM. IF Miami and BC wins, who knows how they settle a 3 way tie.

    It's this kind of thing that makes me long for the days of an 8-team ACC.

    No argument here. ACCT Friday was a company holiday with 18 holes in the morning followed by 8 hours of basketball.

    Not a bad draw. Most felt like our talent was 14th or 15th best in pre-season, yet we get the #10 seed. Our problems are not effort or in game coaching. We just have to recruit.

    Well, I’d honestly say that we are closer to 14 or 15 than we are to #9. Big talent gap between top 8 or 9 and the rest of the league.

    Didn't we just beat the 8 seed?

    Yep. I was referring more to the conference records of each team.

    i think you're right about that talent gap and I think it's also the depth of talent. BC with Bowman, ND with Mooney, us with ... .... ... somebody ...., well, everybody's got one. the top teams have 2-3 plus.

    Depends on if Zion is playing. They were floundering without him and now Bolden went down too. Without Zion they won’t make it to the final.

    Hope we can get a W today, our ACCT record is abysmal since the team with Favors went to the semis.

    Damn. Not favored by Vegas despite going against last place team. Tech is always easy money, right....
