NC State closed out its regular season slate with a decisive win at Virginia on Sunday, though that game did not affect the Pack’s ACC tournament seeding: State had already locked up the No. 2 seed. The Wolfpack finished two games ahead of third-place Duke.
The ACC tournament begins on Wednesday afternoon; here is the bracket:
NC State earned a double-bye, automatically advancing to the quarterfinals. State will get to relax until Friday night, when it will be play the winner of what will most likely be a Georgia Tech-Notre Dame matchup. That’s a potential revenge game for the Pack, which gave away a home contest to the Jackets not long ago. A trip to the semifinals would probably mean a rematch with Duke as well.
I’d love to get another crack at Louisville, too. Could be revenge opportunities for State all the way through this tournament, and the Pack definitely owes the Cardinals one.
