ACC women's basketball tournament begins today -- WEDNESDAY CARDINAL COUPLE


Things get hopping in Greensboro, NC this afternoon in the
ACC Tournament and CARDINAL COUPLE is here to provide you with the action. 

Pittsburgh and North Carolina tip things off at 1 p.m. EST in a match up of the #12 and #13 seeds.  Sylvia Hatchell and her Tar Heels have had a season to forget but have a chance to build one shining moment for themselves today and they should get by the Pitt squad that was demoralized by Louisville 72 hours should be a close one for the opener. 

Wake Forest and Clemson tangle in the 3:30 ,match. Clemson was " 0 for conference and I don't see that changing.  Let us hope they can keep it entertaining. Wake is probably disgruntled that they got the #10 seed and have to play on opening day...but should win as long as they don't act too sulky.

The nightcap features Virginia Tech and Boston College and
it will be fun to see how many threes BC hoists against the Gobblers. VT is the #11 seed and would love another shot at # 8 seed NC State on Thursday. I took BC for the mild what I feel should be another down to the wire battle. 


CONTEST closes at 1:00 p.m. so get those entries in. We have over twenty so far. Someone asked about a tie breaker. Same as it has always been. Earlier entry gets the cornbread.
