The 11th seeded Eagles will face the 6th seeded Virginia Cavaliers in the first round of the ACC Tournament at Greensboro Coliseum.
The pairings are now set for the 2013 ACC Women's Basketball Tournament to be held March 7-10 at -- where else? -- Greensboro Coliseum. The Boston College Lady Eagles, who snapped a four-game losing streak earlier this afternoon by defeating Georgia Tech 74-68 on Senior Day, earned the no. 11 seed in this week's ACC Tournament.
BC (11-18, 5-11 ACC) finished the regular season in a three-way tie with Wake Forest and Clemson for 9th, but lost the tiebreakers with a 1-3 record against the tied teams. Clemson finished with a combined record of 2-1 against BC and Wake to earn the tournament's no. 9 seed. Wake Forest, 2-1 against the tied teams but having lost the head-to-head against Clemson, is the no. 10 seed.
The Eagles will face the 6th seeded Virginia Cavaliers (16-13, 8-10) in the first round of the ACC Tournament on Thursday at 8 PM. The game will be broadcast on RSN. The Eagles and Cavaliers split the regular season series this season, with UVa winning at home 69-57 back on January 24, and BC earning the 61-49 home win on February 14.
Regular-season champ Duke (27-2, 17-1 ACC) is the tournament's top seed. Maryland (23-6, 14-4) is no. 2, followed by no. 3 North Carolina (26-5, 14-4) and No. 4 Florida State (21-8, 11-7) are the other three teams that will receive first-round byes.
