The Battle to Play VT

Note: gt is favored by 7 on Saturday.

On Saturday, wake forest (fresh off a win against duke) will head to Coral Gables to face the miami hurricanes at 2 PM on Saturday.  The winner will finish in 10th place in the ACC and face the Hokies (locked into the 15th seed) on the Opening Day of the ACC Tournament next Wednesday at 3:30 PM.

It is a battle of weaknesses — wake is 1-7 in ACC road games this season and just 2-31 in Coach Bzdelik’s four seasons at wake.  Meanwhile, miami is just 2-6 in ACC home games this season, but they have won 2 in a row at home after an 0-6 start.

Obviously the Hokies would seem to want miami given that they swept the canes this year for their only two wins, but wake is 0-3 in the ACC Tournament under soon to be fired Coach Bzdelik, so who knows.
