It's been just two short seasons since the Virginia Tech men's basketball team made a magical run through the ACC Tournament. In 2022, the Hokies entered the tournament as the No. 7 seed and won four games in four days behind Hunter Cattoor to stun the field and win the championship.

This season, the Hokies will head to Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. with hopes of winning the title again. If they are going to do it, they will need the magic from two years ago. Virginia Tech will be the No. 8 seed this week nd by winning their last three games of the regular season against Wake Forest, Louisville, and Notre Dame, it allowed them to get a bye on Day 1 and avoid needing to play five games to win the tourney.

The Hokies will open up against No. 9 Florida State, a team they split their two regular-season meetings with as each team won on their home floor. Entering the tournament, Mike Young's team is playing some of their best basketball and when everyone gets to Washington, it feels like it's a new season and everyone is 0-0 in the single elimination format.

At 18-13 overall, Virginia Tech's path to getting into the NCAA Tournament will be to win the tournament in the Nations Capital. Here are two reasons why the Hokies will win the tournament and two reasons they won't.
