One of the great streaks in the ACC continued Thursday on the first day of the ACC Tournament – the wahoos failed to make the ACC Tournament Semi-Finals for the 16th straight year. And they accomplished this in epic fashion — uva led 53-43 with 45 seconds left in the game. But thanks to two 3-pointers for miami, 3 uva turnovers, 2 missed uva FTs, a cane dunk, and a cane ‘and-1′ (though he missed the FT to give miami the lead), miami sent the game to OT and then buried the cavs.
uva has not made the ACC Semi-Finals since 1995. And remember – there were only nine teams in the league until 2004 so they basically just had to win one game the first half of this streak. They have been bad for a lot of years now.
Let’s hope the Hokies can start a push to the Semi-Finals tonight by at least making the Quarters. VT made the semis in back-to-back years in 2007 and 2008.
