    If the season ended today, they wouldn't be. Thats my point. But you guys have plenty of chances to win your win in.

    so you don't think UNC is going to be in the field of 68? Is that your point?

    Well, I can name quite a few teams that will be invited, so they are already relevant to the NCAA tournament. But you are correct, it doesn't really matter until March.

    Well, we will see how it falls out. Right now, no team has NCAA "relevance" because the tournament has not started and not one team has earned their invitation.

    Relevance is determined in March, not in February.

    Sorry.

    So UNC needs to win some games in the ACC Tourney to get in the field of 68?

    Too bad Roy doesn't put any stock in the ACC tourney. It's a "cocktail party", I believe he calls it?

    I don't know about the others...but a UNC team with 20 wins and above average league record...go to NCAAs every time....every time, albeit at a higher seed that we would want...but hey....WE are in there.
    Now, a team that is a lesser name brand (which pretty much means everyone else)...I don't know. I guess you better be concerned with your RPI and SOS and such.

    With Maryland's schedule, the Terps will push someone out of the running by the end of the regular season...most likely UNC or Virginia (neither have a quality win).

    AGREED!!!
    but for some reason there is a bias against ACC basketball...
    The ranking (ap) this year are the dumbest ever!!!
    I think Virginia, State, and UNC are in the top 40 programs in the country but, let's see what the tourny makers think when it comes right down to it...
    if they think like AP voters: we are ALL in trouble... (unc,state,uva)

  • VT1994Hokie Feb 18, 2013

    The ACC should get at least 5 teams into the NCAA Tourney.

    Although only 4 teams may be invited to the tourney, it may not be the top 4 teams in the conference standings.

  • PacknoPride Feb 18, 2013

    They have to bet State or Duke and end up in the top 4 in the ACC. Only 4 teams going from the ACC.

    10-8 and I'm still sweating like SAC at a fat midget convention! 11-7 we are in no doubt!

    If we win 20 gms and go 10-8 in league....we are in...can't see it any other way.

  • anderson Feb 18, 2013

    Ok...Roy has what is obviously a better staring lineup now and a better rotation. The last couple of games the Heels have been actually playing like a team that knows one another. Their RPI is up to 30, but they don't have any high quality wins. Can they win 5 of their next 6? Can they make a deep run in the ACC tourney? Will they make the NCAA if they don't beat Duke but win the rest of their games? What will it take to get them in the Big Dance? :)

    My guess is if they win 4 of the next 6 and win one or two in the ACC tourney they are in.
