The ACC Tournament brackets was announced yesterday and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets snagged the overall #3 seed in the round-robin format. The Virginia Cavaliers, who won the Coastal tiebreaker took the #1 seed, while Florida State, the Atlantic Division Champions took the #2 seed. Other teams that made it into the tournament include North Carolina, Miami, Clemson, NC State, and Wake Forest.
Because the ACC Tournament is a roud-robin of two divisions, the schedule has already been set. Georgia Tech plays the following schedule next week in Durham, NC.
Wednesday 11AM vs. Clemson
Thursday 7PM vs. NC State
Friday 3PM vs. Florida State
Sunday 1PM ACC Championship
Conference tournaments for baseball are tough to organize and schedule, and frankly there is really no right answer. Single-elimination tournaments aren't good for baseball and double elimination is too many games over a weekend (I guess). But this round-robin format sets teams up to play wasted games that just don't matter either. However, these games could mean small-somethings for the Jackets as they need to continue on the winning track to solidify a National Top Seed. According to Boyd's World Pseudo RPI Rankings, Georgia Tech sits at #7. Consistent showings this week can give us a top seed and grab homefield advantage in both the Regional and Super Regional rounds of the NCAA Tournament.
