#15 Clemson @ #4 Florida State          1:00PM

Duke @ #15 Miami (FL)                        1:00PM

NC State @ Boston College                            1:00PM       

Wake Forest @ Maryland                      1:00PM

#8 Georgia Tech @ Virginia Tech          2:00PM

Seeding scenarios (assuming all games are played):

  • Virginia needs one win or a Georgia Tech loss to clinch the Coastal Division and #1 seed in the ACC Tournament.
  • With its win over Clemson Thursday, Florida State clinches the Atlantic Division and the #2 seed in the ACC Tournament.
  • Georgia Tech needs a sweep of Virginia Tech and a North Carolina sweep of Virginia to win the Coastal Division (and the #1 seed); otherwise the Yellow Jackets will be the #3 seed in the ACC Tournament.
  • Miami (FL) and North Carolina are locked into the #4 and #5 seeds for the ACC Tournament. The Tar Heels trail the Hurricanes by a half game and therefore would need to do one game better than Miami (FL) in the last two games to move into the #4 seed.
  • Clemson is locked into either the #6 or #7 seed in the ACC Tournament. The Tigers need only a win or a NC State loss to clinch the #6 seed.
  • NC State could be either the #6, #7, or #8 seed in the ACC Tournament. The Wolfpack would be the #6 seed with a sweep of Boston College and a Florida State sweep of Clemson. NC State will be the #7 seed unless they lose one more game than Wake Forest in the final two games, in which case the Wolfpack will be the #8 seed.
  • Wake Forest will be either the #7 or #8 seed in the ACC Tournament. If the Demon Deacons can win one more game than NC State in the final two games, they will be the #7 seed. Otherwise, Wake Forest will be the #8 seed.
  • Virginia Tech, Boston College, Duke, and Maryland have been eliminated from contention for the ACC Tournament.
