Greetings, Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) basketball fans.
Earlier this week, we blogged about the need for Virginia Tech to win at Boston College. Here’s what we said:
Virginia Tech “does not have a good road record” (awful) at Boston College – we’re looking at a horrific 2-11 all time at Boston College. In fact, in 2009 and 2011, I’d say that losing at Boston College put a major dent in Virginia Tech’s NCAA hopes those years. Why is it so hard to win at Boston College? I have no idea – many people say that that place is like a hypnosis forum where you are lulled to sleep as a player. This can’t happen to Virginia Tech.
Today, Virginia Tech defeated Boston College by the score of 91-75. This is only Virginia Tech’s third ever win on the road at Boston College.
Today was Virginia Tech’s 3rd win lifetime at Boston College and the most points scored in a game against BC, home or away, ever. #Hokies

Losing to Boston College might have put the Hokies back on bubble – there might still have been a path to the NCAA tournament, but losing to a 200+ RPI team can sometimes kill the NCAA tournament dreams of another foe (look at Georgetown and their loss to Arkansas State). But that didn’t happen – Virginia Tech defeated Boston College. And, in the process:
Miami and Virginia Tech locked up NCAA bids with their wins today. Neither has to win another game. Only seeding could change now.

What a weekend for the Hokies!!!
