Boston College missed a big opportunity yesterday to, well, not finish last in the ACC this season. At 3-11, the Eagles are now in last place, losing the head-to-head tiebreaker to Georgia Tech, also 3-11. BC will have the opportunity to jump the Jackets in the ACC standings this Wednesday at Conte Forum.
If the tournament were today, Boston College would earn the 12th seed and a first round date with Miami. The Eagles got drilled by the Hurricanes earlier this year 76-54, but get a second crack at the U in the regular season finale on Saturday.
Here's how the ACC Tournament currently shakes out.
No. 5 Miami (8-6) vs. No. 12 Boston College (3-11)
No. 6 Clemson (7-7) vs. No. 11 Georgia Tech (3-11)
