Virginia Tech prepares for ACC tournament
By this time next week, we'll know for sure whether or not Virginia Tech will be in the NCAA tournament. But for now, here's some reading to start your Monday.
Virginia Tech received a No. 4 seed in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament with its win at Georgia Tech on Saturday. The rest of the bracket was set and the Hokies will play either fifth-seeded Wake Forest or 12th-seeded Miami on Friday afternoon in Greensboro, N.C.
Virginia Tech Coach Seth Greenberg has said all season that he likes this collection of players. Here's what @HeadHokie had to say on Saturday night after the team had returned to Blacksburg: "This is a special group with character toughness and a willingness to accept and embrace rolls!"
Mark Schlabach of ESPN.com writes about how Virginia Tech is hoping its 10-6 record in the ACC will make the difference in putting it into the NCAA tournament, even though the Hokies had a weak nonconference and ACC schedule. "We played the schedule we were given," Greenberg said. "It's tough to win 10 games."
Correction: An earlier version of this post misstated which teams the Hokies could meet Friday in the ACC tournament.
