Seth Greenberg for ACC coach of the year?

BOSTON -- Seth Greenberg has led Virginia Tech to its best start in his seven seasons in Blacksburg, and the Hokies are on the cusp of making their second NCAA tournament appearance in the past four seasons. Safe to say he's done a good job.

But for all that Virginia Tech has already accomplished this season, do you think Greenberg deserves to be the coach of the year in the Atlantic Coast Conference? Or should that go to Maryland Coach Gary Williams? Or someone else in the ACC, like, perhaps, Duke's Mike Krzyzewski?

The Post's Eric Prisbell asks that very question on The 65. Check it out, and cast your vote for who it should be.

There might be a clearer answer to the question on Saturday. After returning from its trip here to play Boston College, Virginia Tech (21-5, 8-4) plays Maryland (19-7, 9-3) in a meeting crucial for the Hokies' and their NCAA tournament aspirations. They get a win over the Terrapins, and avoid a slip-up against Boston College or North Carolina State, and they're likely in the NCAA tournament.

With all due respect to Gary Williams, who I think has done an excellent job this year at Maryland, if the season ended today I think Seth Greenberg would have to be the ACC Coach of the Year. VT was projected to finish 8th out of 12 teams in the ACC's official media poll to start the season, and one independent publication even had them picked as low as 11th. For the Hokies to now be sitting at 21-5 is nothing less than remarkable. They don't win pretty, but the gut out games with tenacity and tough defense. Seth Greenberg most definitely deserves his 3rd ACC Coach of the Year award.
