The ACC, the nation’s top conference according to Warren Nolan, went 6-4 in non-conference action over the last week to move to 216-77 (.737) on the year against non-ACC foes. Last week only North Carolina went unbeaten (4-0) while five teams (Florida State, Miami (FL), NC State, North Carolina, and Virginia) remain ranked in the top-25 in at least one poll led by top-ranked Florida State. This weekend wraps up regular-season play as two spots still remain in the ACC Tournament while the top six teams play for seeding.
