Weekly NET Update 2/12/24

Weekly snapshot of where we aren’t

A Quick Look Back At Last Week …

Two very much needed, winnable, opportunities slipped away by only 7 total points, Pitt by 3, Wake by 4. Both games felt kind of like our season seems to be going, we held out hope to the very end, only to be disappointed. Our NET ranking moved from 77 last Monday to 80 today.

The Path to the Tournament

Right now, ESPN’s Joe Lunardi says that the ACC has 4 teams solidly in the tournament. UNC (NET 10, 6 Q1 wins), Duke (NET 17, 5 Q1 wins), Clemson (NET 29, 4 Q1 wins), UVA (NET 32, 2 Q1 wins). None have a Q4 loss, each have 1 Q3 loss.

Wake (NET 35) is listed as on the bubble with a solid NET rank, but with zero Q1 wins, but also with no Q3 or Q4 losses. In the next two weeks they have Duke twice, and at UVA, which could really help them if they win.

Then the ACC’s NET rankings drop quite a bit:

  • Pitt (NET 59) 1 Q1 win but 2 Q3 losses. They have shots at WF, Clemson, and UVA left.
  • Va Tech (NET 62) 3 Q1 wins but 1 Q3 loss. They have shots at UNC, UVA, and WF left.
  • Miami (NET 69) 2 Q1 wins but a Q3 and a Q4 loss. They have shots at Duke, Clemson, and UNC left.

All three definitely have work to do. Va Tech appears to have the best chance right now.

And then there is NC State (NET 80) No Q1 wins and no Q3 or Q4 losses. We have 4 remaining Q1 opportunities. At Clemson, UNC, and Pitt, and Duke comes to PNC. For us to catapult up far enough to be in the tourney conversation, it’ll have to be an insane final month of the ACC season.

NET Scorecard: NC State (16-9, 8-6) NET 75, Ranked 8th in ACC NET Rankings
