The ACC Tournament kicks off Tuesday as three first-round games begin action from Greensboro, North Carolina, and the race to crown a champion begins Saturday. While teams in action in the first round will need to win five games in five days to cut the nets at the end of the week, all it takes is a team warming up at the right time for something unexpected to happen. arrive.
The first will be No. 12 seed Florida State taking on No. 13 seed Georgia Tech, with the winner advancing to face No. 5 seed Pittsburgh. Next, No. 10 seed Boston College takes on No. 15 seed Louisville, with the winner advancing to face No. 7 seed North Carolina. The Tar Heels are among the top teams to watch this week as they look to build an NCAA tournament resume after entering the week on the wrong side of the bubble in Jerry Palm’s Bracketology.
Finally, Tuesday night’s game will pit No. 11 seed Virginia Tech against No. 14 seed Notre Dame as part of Fighting Irish coach Mike Brey’s final season with the program ending.
The top four seeds in the ACC Tournament are out until the quarterfinals through Thursday, but that’s no guarantee of success. Last season, the No. 7 seed Virginia Tech won four games in four days to claim the title.
We’ll be following all the action here to see if any similar surprises are in store for the 2023 ACC Tournament.
