Poll: Will Virginia Tech make NCAA tournament?
With its loss to Miami on Friday in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, Virginia Tech thrust itself back into the NCAA tournament bubble conversation. Before then, the Hokies were in a better place: in the field of 65.
Now, until the selection show on Sunday, Virginia Tech's players and coaches will have to sweat it out.
Even with their loss on Friday, the Hokies might still sneak into the bracket, but it will be close. Virginia Tech will benefit from this season's dismal at-large pool and recent losses by a few teams competing with them for at-large spots. But that doesn't take away from Virginia Tech's awful nonconfernece schedule, which will really hurt the Hokies in the eyes of the selection committee.
In the end, I still think Virginia Tech will end up in the bracket. But with mere hours before Selection Sunday, I'll open up the question to the masses. Feel free to provide your take on the Hokies, and you can drop your thoughts in the comments section below.
