RTC Live: ACC 1st Round – Virginia vs. Boston CollegePosted by rtmsf on March 11th, 2010
ACC fans, your favorite time of the year has finally arrived. It’s the Granddaddy of them all, and it’s about to tip. This hasn’t been a vintage year for the ACC, with only two schools, Duke and Maryland, being ranked at the end of the regular season. However, don’t be fooled into believing that the 2010 version won’t be as exciting as in earlier years. The ACC is full of bubble teams who don’t want to have their NCAA fate decided by a committee of their peers, so you can bet on some intense, spirited play. The opening round begins today at noon with a pair of teams who must win four consecutive games in order to punch their ticket to the Big Dance, Boston College and Virginia. The former enters this game with a 68-55 home win over the Cavaliers just eight days ago while the latter enters without their 2010 second team all-ACC guard Sylven Landesberg, who was suspended by head coach Tony Bennett for the remainder of the season due to academic issues, and senior guard Calvin Baker. The winner earns the right to play top-seeded Duke in the quarterfinals tomorrow. Follow us here at RTC from day one through the championship to see if your favorite team will hoist that famous trophy on selection Sunday. Sit back and enjoy!
