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.

As as avid Virginia fan, it pains me to say that Tech is a lock. As you say, the at-large field is AWFUL this year, perhaps the worst ever.

While a horrible loss to an improving UM, this team HAS proved it can play with anybody (defeats of Wake, etc. and super close losses to Duke and UMD. So while I am an alumnus so these comments can be classified in a 'fan' category, I feel my non-partisan intelligent side, is correct, They are worthy and deserve it.

VT has enough quality wins to make it, along with excruciatingly close games against Duke and Maryland.

Perhaps hoos3014 has forgotten about the VT-Virginia games, which were both won decisively by VT. One of those was a comeback affair, after being down by double digits.
