There are still three weeks remaining in the 2023-24 regular season before the ACC Men's Basketball Tournament begins in Washington, D.C. on March 12. The standings are tight at the top, while it is a bunched mess the rest of the way down. The final seedings will likely come down to tiebreakers and you can get a headache trying to figure them out.

North Carolina is on top by a half-game over Duke and the two teams still have one more meeting to close out the regular season in Durham next month which will likely decide who wins the regular season championship. Both teams are currently a Top 16 seed for the NCAA Tournament next month and are locks to be part of the 68-team field. Clemson has all but assured they'll be joining them, while Wake Forest and Virginia still have work to do.

With that said, here is what the ACC matchups in Wshington would currently be if the season ended today.

First Round, Tuesday, March 12

  • Game 1: No. 12 Miami vs. No. 13 Notre Dame, 2 p.m.
  • Game 2: No. 10 Virginia Tech vs. No. 15 Louisville, 4:30 p.m.
  • Game 3: No. 11 Boston College vs. No. 14 Georgia Tech, 7 p.m.

Second Round, Wednesday, March 13

  • Game 5: No. 5 North Carolina State vs. Game 1 winner, 2:30 p.m.
  • Game 6: No. 7 Clemson vs. Game 2 winner, 7 p.m.
  • Game 7: No. 6 Wake Forest vs. Game 3 winner, 9:30 p.m.

Quarterfinals, Thursday, March 14

  • Game 8: No. 1 North Carolina vs. Game 4 winner, 12 p.m.

  • Game 10: No. 2 Duke vs. Game 6 winner, 7 p.m.
  • Game 11: No. 3 Virginia vs. Game 7 winner, 9:30 p.m.

Again, there is still a lot to be sorted out, but it's certainly going to be fun over the final three weeks before the matchups are finally set.
