Showing off the crazy depth of its conference, this is the second game between ranked opponents in the quarterfinal round of the 2017 ACC Tournament. We had #14 Duke and #10 Louisville face off earlier today, and tonight, #21 Virginia will take on #22 Notre Dame.
Virginia finished tied with Duke for fifth place in the ACC, posting an 11-7 record in conference play. Due to the Cavaliers losing their lone game against Duke this year, they were named the #6 seed in the ACC Tournament. This gave Virginia a first round bye, and they were able to top #14 Pittsburgh 75-63 in the second round to advance to the quarterfinals.
Notre Dame finished in a three-way tie for second place in the ACC with a 12-6 record in conference play. After the tiebreakers were determined, the Fighting Irish was awarded the #3 seed and a double bye. Tonight’s game will be Notre Dame’s first appearance in the 2017 ACC Tournament, and they certainly won’t be able to ease their way into the action.
This doesn’t appear to be a good draw for Notre Dame, as Virginia smoked them in their lone meeting during the regular season. On January 24, the Cavaliers went into South Bend and cruised to a 71-54 win over the Fighting Irish.
Now that you know a little bit about the matchup, let’s breakdown all of the ways you can watch this ACC Tournament quarterfinal.
