Two reasons Virginia Tech wins the ACC Tournament

Hokies are hot

They say that you want to be playing your best basketball in March and that is what the Hokies are doing. In their three wins to close out the regular season, they scored 80 points in each game and shot the ball well. They have been getting big performances from their bigs and that will be key in the tournament. Getting off to a good start in the tournament is a must and in their last three wins, they rallied for one, led wire to wire for another, then survived a late rally from Notre Dame to win a close game, something they will need to do going forward.

Sean Pedulla can be THAT man

Two years ago, Hunter Cattoor had a weekend for the ages in leading the Hokies to the ACC Championship and this season while the senior sharpshooter is still on the roster, point guard Sean Pedulla has been very good this year and can be that man this week. He has been very good at getting to the basket and finishing with some tough shots and also getting to the free-throw line. He did not hit a 3-pointer against Notre Dame Saturday and still finished with 28 points. Pedulla can be THAT man for the Hokies.
