Updated ACC Men's Basketball Tournament Seeding Scenarios

So Duke, North Carolina and Miami were all winners last night. So where does that leave BC?

Here are the current ACC standings as of Thursday morning:

Rk. Team GP W L Max W Min W Remaining
1 Duke 15 13 2 14 12 @ North Carolina
2 North Carolina 15 13 2 14 12 Duke
3 Florida State 15 10 5 11 10 @ N.C. State
4 Virginia Tech 15 9 6 10 9 @ Clemson
5 Clemson 15 8 7 9 8 Virginia Tech
6 Boston College 15 8 7 9 8 Wake Forest
7 Maryland 15 7 8 8 7 Virginia
8 Miami (Fl) 15 6 9 7 6 @ Georgia Tech
9 Virginia 15 6 9 7 6 @ Maryland
10 N.C. State 15 5 10 6 5 Florida State
11 Georgia Tech 14 3 11 5 3 @ Wake Forest, Miami
12 Wake Forest 14 1 13 3 1 Georgia Tech, @ Boston College

 

With Maryland's loss to Miami, the four seed is now out, and things are much, much more simplified.

Seeding scenarios. Go.

Fifth Seed

- Boston College defeats Wake Forest
- Clemson defeats Virginia Tech OR Virginia Tech defeats Clemson

If Clemson defeats Virginia Tech, BC, Clemson and Virginia Tech all finish at 9-7. Clemson wins the three-way tiebreaker over the Eagles and Hokies with a 2-0 record. BC earns the fifth seed with a 2-1 record, while Virginia Tech takes the no. 6 seed.

BC also earns the fifth seed if the Hokies beat Clemson. Virginia Tech would finish 10-6 and get either the 3 or 4 seed, depending on the result of Florida State-N.C. State. At 9-7, BC nabs the fifth seed and 8-8 Clemson is the six seed.

Bottom line: Beat Wake. Earn the 5 seed. Rematch with Wake a few days later. 

Sixth Seed

- Wake Forest defeats Boston College

BC finishes 8-8 and stays where they are ... at number 6. With the number 6 seed, BC would play no. 11 Georgia Tech. The Jackets are locked into the 11 regardless of what they do against Wake Forest or Miami.

 

That's it. That's the list of scenarios. A lot more simple than yesterday, right?
