CARDS, WOLFPACK IN DRIVER'S SEAT FOR TOP 2 SEEDS
Louisville women's basketball and North Carolina State remain the top two teams in the ACC as we roll through February and conference play.
Virginia Tech 11-3
Georgia Tech 10-4
Notre Dame 10-4
North Carolina 9-5
Boston College 7-7
Wake Forest 3-11
In the battle for the top four seeds and playing on Friday 3.4/22, Georgia Tech, Notre Dame and North Carolina are the current schools battling to join Louisville and NCST as top seeds..
The bigger battle would be who are the bottom six teams that would play on Wednesday,, opening day competition, Right now, it looks like Duke would face Virginia, Syracuse would get Pitt and Wake Forest gets Clemson. If Duke gets hot, though, and either Boston College, Miami or FSU hit the skids -- we could see a re-arrangement of Wednesday action.
Let's keep in mind that the schools play 18 conference games each, so some shuffling and position changing is possible with most teams still having three or four conference games to play.
Louisville has won their last eight games, best streak in the ACC right now, but still has Virginia Tech, at Notre Dame, at UNC and Pittsburgh remaining. Can they keep the streak going? NCST and Virginia Tech have four game winning streaks going.
Virginia is the obvious "not hot" team -- they're 0 for conference -- other than them, Pitt is on a four game losing streak and Duke has lost two straight.
GAMES OF NOTE
Louisville hosting Va. Tech Sunday is a #2 vs #3 matchup and should be a fun one. Also on Sunday, NCST hs to travel to Virginia Tech, a top three ACC battle. Tomorrow Notre Dame faces Georgia Tech. They're currently both 10-4 in conference and battling to get a top four seed in Greensboro.
