They are actually doing better than they are suppose to. They will go to the ncaa tourney. I agree they should win, but hey not to many teams have a pg that dribbles out of bounds, not sure why he has the ball at the end of shot clocks or halts all year. That's sports I guess.

I agree UVa chokes on the road. I will be surprised if they make it past the first round of the NIT as well. They will be one and done at the ACC tourney as usual.

i dont think they're getting in the NCAAs...

at this point they're #5 in the ACC, in a bad ACC year they may only take the top 4 in the conference.

plus even if they take the top 5 in the ACC, Maryland will be at most 1 game back and they also beat Duke once, also beat NC State, and their ONLY out of conference loss was the first game of the year against #3 Kentucky

this just isnt a year where a winning record in the ACC is enough to get you in

Right now Duke is a better victory than B.C. is a loss. With the Duke win, they were in solid, now they're still in, but on the bubble. A win @ Tally and home against the twerps and they should be in without having to take the conference tourney into consideration. A loss of either, they're going to need a good win in the tourney to get in.
Play on

They did not come to play against BC. In an interview last week prior to the game Mitchell stated they needed to create their own energy. They did not.

Against Duke the coaching was good especially with the rotation in the 2nd half. Against BC it was questionable. Jeffperson is inconsistent, but he did hit three 3 point shots and I don't believe he was in the game during the final minutes. You foul a jump shooter. You have no chance to block the shot and the worst case happened, he makes the shot and is fouled, 4pt play.

UVA had one timeout but did not use it. Instead they allowed Evans to dribble up court. He had no where to go, no one came to meet him in the corner to even attempt a shot. He should have kept the ball in the center of the court with players coming off of screens on both sides to give more shot options.
They have to win the remaining two games. Win something in the ACC Tournament to help get a bid to the NCAA.
Wow
