FIVE Days from the beginning of the 2015 ACC Tournament….the 1st with the Louisville Cardinals. Last night the Cards fell to Notre Dame and Duke took down Wake Forest. With those games, the ACC Tournament now has 5 of 14 seeds anchored into place:
3) Notre Dame
11) Wake Forest
12) Boston College.
The rest of the seeds are up for grabs. Louisville is now either going to be a 4 or 5 seed in the ACC Tourney.
ACC Basketball Tournament Tiebreakers Per the League Office
I. When two teams are tied in the standings, regular-season head-to-head results are used as the tiebreaker.
Louisville Football landed its 4th commitment of the 2016 class on Wednesday night, when Defensive Tackle TJ London made his pledge to the Cards. Nicknamed “Big Snack” because of his huge frame (he ranges from 302-402 lbs on recruiting sites), London is from the same High School as 2015 signee Khane Pass in Columbus, GA. Carver High School is also home to one of Louisville’s top quarterback targets in 2016 Jawon Pass.
TJ is a Nose Guard on the defensive line….a rare position on the recruiting trail for the Cardinals typically. Louisville has done a great job defensively despite not having the guys that have the type of frame that Todd Grantham’s 3-4 defense typically requires. London has that size.
We are 6 days away from the ACC Tournament Beginning in Greensboro, NC. 3 of the 14 Seeds in the ACC Tournament are set in stone:
#11 Wake Forest
#12 Boston College
The rest is up for grabs. The Cards currently sit in the #4 position with a double-bye that the Top 4 seeds earn. If the Cards can beat Notre Dame tonight they have a CHANCE to earn the #3 seed by beating Virginia on Saturday. First things first. There are a lot of important games tonight that will determine seeding and end of season opportunities. It’s a big night.
