The NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament is six weeks away. Over those six weeks, there are going to be plenty of big games for teams that have dreams of having their name called on Selection Sunday. In a lot of different bracketology, there are not a lot of ACC teams that are looking good for an at-large berth. Of course one of those teams could play their way into the tournament by going on a run over the final 10 games of the regular season or in the ACC Tournament next month.
Last season, Miami made a surprise run to the Final Four, and North Carolina missed the tournament and this year, they are the best team in the conference and will likely receive this highest seed of any team unless they stumble a couple of times against Duke.
With the picture currently looking grim for the ACC let’s take a look at where the teams stand and what their chances of making the tournament are.
Louisville, Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, Boston College, Pittsburgh.
There is not much here at the backend of the conference. Louisville is in a major rebuild, Notre Dame is looking to the future under Micah Shrewsberry, while Georgia Tech is making strides under Damon Stoudamire in his first season and coming off an upset of North Carolina Tuesday night. Boston College continues to make small steps under Earl Grant, but the NIT is in their future this season if they can finish above .500.
