    This Week in the ACC: Post-Season Week 1

    Twelve ACC teams are enjoying post-season play - 9 in the big dance and 3 in the NIT. Farewell to Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, and Pittsburgh, we'll see you all in November.

    Here's the lineup for the week. I've included the first games only - after all, it's one-and-done territory - but will update it during the week as results warrant.

    Tuesday
    [33]Louisville (-10) hosts [95]Northern Kentucky (7:00, ESPN)
    [73]Boston College (+5) at [60]Western Kentucky (8:00, ESPN3)
    [31]Notre Dame (-20) hosts [246]Hampton (9:00, ESPN)

    Wednesday
    [54]Syracuse (+1) vs. [45]Arizona State in Dayton (9:10, TruTV)

    Thursday
    [3]Duke (-19) vs. [134]Iona in Pittsburgh (2:45, CBS)
    [36]Miami (-1) vs. [41]Loyola-Chicago in Dallas (3:10, TruTV)
    [42]NC State (+1) vs. [26]Seton Hall in Wichita (4:30, TBS)
    [32]Virginia Tech (-2) vs. [51]Alabama in Pittsburgh (9:20, TNT)

    Friday
    [7]North Carolina (-19) vs. [165]Lipscomb in Charlotte (2:45, CBS)
    [1]Virginia (-20) vs. [184]UMBC in Charlotte (9:20, TNT)
    [35]Florida State (-1) vs. [38]Missouri in Nashville (9:50, TBS)
    [19]Clemson (-5) vs. [55]New Mexico State in San Diego (9:57, TruTV)

    N.I.T

    Watching Notre Dame play Hampton.

    Also, the NCAA is using the NIT as a guinea pig to test out a few ideas.

    Here's a run-down of the tweaks:

    ​• The three-point line will be extended by approximately 1 foot 8 inches to the same distance used by FIBA for international competition (22 feet 1.75 inches).
    ​• The free throw lane will be widened from 12 feet to 16 feet, consistent with the width used by the NBA.
    ​• The games will be divided into four 10-minute quarters as opposed to two 20-minute halves. Teams will shoot two free throws beginning with the fifth foul of each quarter.
    • The shot clock will reset to 20 seconds after an offensive rebound instead of the full 30 seconds.

    Three ACC teams went down in Thursdays round of games. Duke held up our part but Miami, VT and NC State all bit the dust. Does that say anything about the conference. UVA and UNC should win today and Clemson is right in there, so the results should be better. Syracuse can do well in the tournament since their zone D is unlike what a lot of teams see in their regular seasons.

    Well it's a bit unsettling, but too small a sample size to make firm conclusions. As a Duke fan, I am tired of this dynamic:

    ...the three teams mentioned above are all among those prioritizing their game with Duke as the Super Bowl and then laying an egg in post season. I get really tired of that. Maybe it's sour grapes, but when they storm the court on those instances when they beat Duke, I'm like "get back to me when you accomplish anything nationally..."

    IMO, it doesn't say too much about the conference. Those were all basically toss up games. Miami -1, NCST+3.5, and VT -3 were the lines. It would be great if we won and can say the ACC is awesome but I don't lose much sleep beyond Duke winning and UNC losing when it comes to ACC performance. YMMV

    I'm disappointed the most in VT. I watched most of that game and VT had 2 key Bama players in foul trouble and was in the bonus with like 12 min left of a tie game. They should have been able to capitalize but kept turning the ball over left and right. Also Bama hit 2 TOUGH shots on consecutive possessions around the 2 min mark that sealed the game.

    State and VT were in 8/9 games so those were definitely coin flips; but Miami as a 6 should have won. With that said, I picked the upset in my bracket as I think a lot of people did; Miami has sort of stumbled to finish out the season. I wonder if that last second three felt like payback for the win they got in Chapel Hill (a tradeoff I will gladly accept )

    I was hoping State and VT would advance because they would each have gotten a shot at knocking off a #1 seed in the next round. Oh well...

    Miami was fortunate to do as well as they did without Bruce Brown. I picked this upset, too. Then again, I also picked Ohio St to lose.

    I did too. I was flipflopping between Ohio State and Arizona to lose. I the "pick the biggest upset" thread, I did pick Buffalo. But in my brackets, I didn't do it. Regretting that now.

    But pleased to get Loyola upsetting Miami in both (though it was a popular upset pick).

    I thought Zona had zero chance to lose to Buffalo. Their best non-conference win this season was UAB. They did have a good showing against Syracuse, St. Bonaventure and Cincy in losses, but got blown out by South Dakota St and Texas A&M.

    Just goes to show how weird the tournament can be.

    Pitt's entire team is transferring, per Jeff Goodman on Twitter.

    Seriously. They had 9 non-seniors. 8 are transferring.

    In other ACC news, 8 Pitt players are transferring as part of a mass exodus since Stallings is gone. Hopefully all the good ones donít go to unc.

    They probably still win more ACC games next year.

    I can't imagine why any coach wouldn't want to go there Seriously, Jamie Dixon must be laughing his head off right now.
