still more work to do, but it certainly was a nice resume deposit.

I just keep thinking about that dang NCSt game. They’ve got the easier schedule down the stretch. I’m assuming 8 teams will make the tourney. So the question could be our RPI (or NET now days?) vs the head to head result. I bet it comes down to winning that first ACC tourney game. The Wolfies need to lose against Syracuse otherwise I expect they finish at 10-8 in conference.

Clemson has an opportunity to finish 10-8 in the league as well. It needs to beat the teams it is supposed to beat. It is possible it can steal a game and get to 11-7, too.

There is still a lot of basketball to be played, but more importantly, it put itself back in contention and that is what you want right now.

I honestly thought this team was done when it lost to NC State....but it is a tribute to this coaching staff and these players now they have battled back and put themselves in a good position. I am having crow for lunch today...and it will taste good!!

I agree the Tigers could finish 10-8, and maybe VT continues to tumble given the injury situation. We mught have VT, NCSt, and Clemson all at 10-8. Does Clemson come out on top in the committee debate? Finishing 11-7 sure would be the best situation to ensure an invite.

When it comes down to head-to-head between the Tigers and the Woofies, only NCS has two HORRIBLE losses (Wake and the 24pt output versus VaTech).
The Hokies have a bad loss to Penn State early in the year.
Clemson has no bad losses yet for the season, knock on wood.

This team has their own destiny in their hands, which is the best you can ask for. Play the team in front of you to the best of your ability, and let the chips fall. Our power rankings are in the mid 30's right now, compared to the mid 60's from the end of last season.
