Good evening, Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Men’s Basketball Fans!!!
We are under three weeks to Selection Sunday. No team really seems to want to hold onto third place in our poll. So, as we did last week, we alter the third, fourth, and fifth place teams in the poll.
The March 2 game between Miami and Duke is MASSIVE. The winner will have an inside track to a #1 seed in the NCAA tournament (yours truly will be in Blacksburg for Erick Green’s senior night game – but will make time to watch that game). This is a game that’s going to be on the national radar.

The win snapped a nine-game losing streak for the Hokies (12-15, 3-11 Atlantic Coast Conference), who were looking to avoid their first 10-game skid since the 2001-02 season.
Virginia Tech trailed most of the first half, but Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton...
An hour before tip-off, several Miami Hurricanes stretching on the court craned their necks toward the scoreboard to watch a few of this season's video highlights. Then they made some more.
Shane Larkin scored 22 points and played smothering defense on Erick Green to help the Hurricanes bounce back from a loss and beat Virginia Tech 76-58 Wednesday night.
