Who will win the ACC Tournament? I'm ready for the tourney to start.?
UNC will win over anyone except Duke because Duke will never lose to UNC 3 out of 3 times in a season, and I like Georgia Tech as a dark horse. Virginia also makes a strong case as to why they have a legit shot at winning as well.
I think unc will win the acc tournament they are very strong right now who do you think will win it?
It will probably come down to Duke and UNC, but you never know. Duke looks absolutely exhausted right now, and UNC is peaking at the right time.
I'll take UNC until Duke shows me that they aren't going through the motions.
The ACC is their confrence, and just cause you lose in your confrence tournament doesn't mean your out of the NCAA tournament. Duke is an good example of that, they have been a powerhouse all year so they are in the NCAA tournament but may not have the seed in the tournament they wanted because they lost. So no worries they still have a shot.
Most confrences have a season ending tournament to find a confrence champion, the winner of the confrence championship has an automatic position in the NCAA tournament. The rest of the team are selected by a committee
How will the Big East & ACC perform in this year's NCAA tournament?
Playing tougher teams during the season only makes you a tougher team. With both conferences playing tougher schedules during the regular season, that will just make them that much harder to beat come tourney time.
I predict two, maybe three teams will make it to the Final Four this year from these two conferences.
Which teams from the ACC will make the NCAA tournament?
obviously unc,duke, and clemson are all in
Miami will make it because of their home wins and they started strong and went down..Came back up with that Duke win though huh...
Maryland wont make it..doesnt have any other wins other than UNC that impresses me or anything spectacular..Look for them to upset someone in the ACC tournament maybe..that will give them a spot
Vtech- They have got to got to GOT TO win the ACC tournament or at least get to the finals
well there u go
Did Miami's shocking run through the ACC tournament hurt Duke's chances at a #1 seed somewhat?
Duke should still get the #1 seed it isn't their fault the ACC tournament has been so whack. They are still a #1 seed caliber team.
BQ: A lot of praying. there is no way A & M wins that game
BQ2: Not turn the ball over and shoot well from the 3 point range
1 North Carolina over 8 Virginia Tech
4 Florida State over 5 Clemson
2 Wake Forest over 10 NC State
6 Boston College over 3 Duke(upset)
1 North Carolina over 4 Florida State
2 Wake Forest over 6 Boston College
1 North Carolina over 2 Wake Forest
UNC wins 3rd straight ACC tournament
Maryland played poorly and Miami played great. On paper, yes it was a fluke; Maryland beats Duke twice and UNC, then goes on to lose against the "worst" team in the ACC. If you actually watch the game, Miami was clearly the better team that afternoon especially when it came to rebounding. Miami really isn't a bad team. I was hoping that they could have pulled a second upset over BC which they almost did. Anyways, in terms of NCAA seeding, I still think Maryland will get a 6 or 7.
the acc for some reason likes to constantly move the site of the conference tourney, and especially to obscure sites, so no one knows where it is...most of the time it is in greensboro, nc, which is where acc headquarters is, but they've also held it in washington, dc for one year
Why is Maryland 3rd in each set of standings for the acc yet they got the 5th seed in the acc tournament?
Sun, Dec 10 at Boston Coll. L 62-73
Sun, Jan 21 at Virginia Tech L 64-67
BC, VT, and Maryland all have identical ACC records (10-6) at the moment. As such, they go to tie-breakers to determine who gets what seeding in the ACC Tourney. Due to the fact that Maryland lost their games against BC and VT, they fall to 5th in the seedings.
What does it take for an ACC team to clinch an NCAA tournament berth?
ok, ALL teams in the conference go to the ACC tournament, the winner of this tournament gets an automatic bid for the NCAA tournament. All other teams must receive an at-large bid.
On average 5 or 6 teams from this conference get at-large bids.
As for the big 10 comment, I am a fan of the big ten, IU fan and alum, but in the years of the ACC/Big Ten challengs, the Big Ten has never beat the ACC. (that is somewhat skewed b/c the Big Ten NEVER gets a favorable draw for this tournament.) just my opinion.
How does the seeding work for the acc mens basketball tournament?
Its based on the standings at the end of the regular season.
In the event of a tie. the tiebreaker is based on head 2 head matchup between the two teams. If that record is also split then how them the teams record against the next team above them in the standings is used.
Tiebreakers get kinda hard to explain so I'm just going to post this link. http://www.theacc.com/sports/m-baskbl/spec-rel/022607aaa.html
That page goes over the seeding process.
Propose your idea for a new ACC Baseball Tournament?
I agree right now it is a Joke, there's no advantage to being the #1 seed expect for a 3 way tie.
Do it like basketball, all 12 teams get in single game elimination .
8 vs. 9
7 vs. 10
6 vs. 11
5 vs. 12
The winner from each division plays a 3 game series for the win, this is my personnel favorite. In this years case FSU would play UNC in a 3 game series for the conference.
8 or 4 Team Double Elimination Tournament.
1 vs. 8
4 vs. 5
2 vs. 7
3 vs. 6
What do you think of Georgia Tech defeating North Carolina 62-58 in the 1st Round of the ACC tournament?
Being a Yellow Jacket fan, I'm very happy as it's a win in the ACC tournament, it gives them 20 wins so far and a sweep of the Heels who were definetly not their usual selves this year. Hewitt has been on the hot seat this season despite the fact that they have 20 wins because of all those close losses on the road and many feel as if Tech hasn't played up to their potential with the talent they have on the floor. Their defense is mostly excellent but they turn the ball over too much and seem to have a hard time just throwing the ball in. Before the ACC tournament I thought Tech needed to win that 1st game or they were done along with Hewitt. Now I believe they will be in even if they lose the next game. But hey, let's just win the whold tournament and get that automatic bid! Go Jackets!
How is a tie decided in the ACC Baseball Tournament?
If it's a 2 way tie the tie goes to the H2H winner for example if
Miami beats FSU but loses to BC
and FSU beats GT but loses to Miami
and BC loses to GT
Miami 2-1 FSU 2-1 GT 1-2 BC 1-2
Miami would get the edge because they beat FSU.
IF it's a 3 way tie than the tie breaker goes to the highest seed so if
FSU beats Miami but loses to GT
Miami beats BC but loses to FSU
FSU 2-1 Miami 2-1 GT 2-1 BC 0-3
FSU advances being the #1 seed.
If FSU wins the ACC Baseball Tournament will they get a national seed?
There's no way of knowing for sure at this point but it is very very likely, even if they make it to the championship game they should get the #8 seed.
Right now a lot of experts have the #8 seed going to Georgia Tech if FSU can defeat them in the ACC tournament that will give this a shot also. A tournament win or championship appearance should lock it up though with Carolina getting one either way.
Do you think Georgia Tech had a good run through the ACC tournament?
Georgia Tech is a great team but completely unpredictable; with possibillity of upsetting a higher seed ; and/ or losing to a lower seed; i see them as a 10 seed in the tourney; great run through the ACC ; now i hope they continue to be consistent; to maybe a sweet 16!
