Who’s a lock for the NCAA tournament?
Georgia Tech earned the league’s automatic bid. Florida State, Virginia, Clemson, Virginia Tech and North Carolina seem likely to have secured NCAA tournament berths.
Who’s on the NCAA tournament bubble?
Four ACC teams — Louisville, North Carolina, Syracuse and Duke — entered the tournament probably needing wins to get off the bubble, with the Cardinals and Tar Heels in the best shape. North Carolina likely did enough by reaching the semifinals. After a positive coronavirus test, the Blue Devils will miss the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1995. The last NCAA tournament to feature neither Duke Coach Mike Krzyzewski nor Syracuse Coach Jim Boeheim took place in 1982, and Syracuse is teetering on the bubble after going 1-1 in Greensboro.
What happened in the last ACC tournament (2019)?
Two years ago in Charlotte, third-seeded Duke defeated fourth-seeded Florida State in the championship game for its 21st ACC tournament title and 15th under Krzyzewski.
