#7 Florida State vs. #10 Miami / #15 Virginia Tech winner

#3 North Carolina
#6 Clemson vs. #11 Georgia Tech / #14 Boston College winner

The Eagle are 0-2 against Georgia Tech this season. BC lost to Georgia Tech on a 3 pointer at the buzzer in the ice delayed game on February 13th. When Georgia Tech came to the Heights they were able to leave with an 8 point victory. BC can certainly beat the Yellow Jackets who are not loaded with talent this year. Also, everyone always says it is tough to beat one team 3 times in one season. Hopefully the Eagles have a good chance to moving on to a game on Thursday against Clemson.  The Eagles and the Tigers played once this season back on January 4th.  The Eagles lost by 2 at home in the contest but judging the outcome of Thursday's potential matchup based on a game over two months ago would be foolish. The Tigers are not an overly big or athletic team so it should be as good of a potential matchup for the Eagles as any second round game could be.
