. 431. . . 12. 13-8. 4-6. . ACC.

The Eagles got revenge for an early-season at Syracuse by beating the Orange at home in their only games of the week. This feels like an NIT team should BC finish above .500.

Last week: No. 11

Games this week: Feb. 6 vs. Florida State, Feb. 10 at Duke

5-6. ACC. 14-8. . . . 444. . . 11

The Panthers picked up two big wins last week over Wake Forest and Notre Dame. Like Boston College, an NIT bid will help build momentum going into next season for Pittsburgh.

Last week; No. 12

Games this week: Feb. 7 at North Carolina State

. 13-9. . ACC. . . 5-6. 10. . 447

The Hokies went into the week with two huge chances to collect Quad 1 wins, but lost at home to Duke by 10, then blew a 10-point lead with just 12 minutes remaining at Miami on Saturday. Those losses all but might have ended Virginia Tech's NCAA Tournament hopes. They have a week off before returning to the court and it's going to be a long week in Blacksburg.

Last week: No. 7

Games this week: Feb. 10 at Notre Dame
