Boston College Regular Season Finale Game Thread

Thanks to the resurgent Orange (and to Wake for beating Duke earlier in the week), NC State is now poised to earn the ACCT 7 seed with a win today. That would leave us likely playing #10 Miami on Thursday, followed by the aforementioned Orange on Friday. Unfortunately, unless #6 Clemson or #11/14 Wake/BC show MUCH more than I expect…Duke would await on Saturday. And State needs to make it to Sunday in order to have a shot at a dance invite.

But…first things first. Boston College is locked in as the #14 seed, and with good reason (they’ve sucked, just not VPI-level sucked). But they do have one very good player (Olivier Hanlon), and did win at Syracuse. We need to see lots of Hipster Cat today, hopefully locking OH down and leading us to an easy victory.

A loss would leave State at #9, and a Thursday game against a confident Maryland team. Let’s not think too much about that.

    I fear that jinxing, too. Hopefully, someone in the student section will at least hold up a “Hipster Cat” pic to keep the new meme rolling.

    Wouldn’t MD be the 7 seed with a loss? Meaning we would face FSU on Thursday.

    No worry Beej.

    FSU won their lone matchup against the Twerps. If we lose, it’s #7 FSU, #8 MD, #9 Pack. Plus, 8 and 9 play each other. 7 gets the 10/15 winner, which will be Miami because VPI really, really sucks.

    7/8/9 are the only seeds yet to be determined, I believe. Unless there are funky tiebreak scenarios among the three schmucks at 11/12/13 (all 6-12).

    FSU and MD split this year, with both teams winning at home. Looking at the tiebreaker rules, MD just beat #1 UVA so they would get the 7 seed.

    FSU/MD played twice this year and split, thus by virtue of their win today (record against highest seeded team I believe is the next tiebreak) I believe that UMd would indeed take #7 if we lose today.

    Leave it to the Twerps to muck things up one more time before they make their exit.

    Crap, my bad. I only saw one matchup when I browsed MD’s schedule. Let’s hope it’s highly theoretical, anyway. No excuse to lose to this BC team.

    Thanks, man. Sacrifices for the greater good.

    Should we win this evening, I do not relish the thought of facing Miami again – even though I doubt we’d see a replay of what happened at the PNC a week or so ago.

    It’s a longshot that VT goes 3-3 against Miami, but VT did in fact beat Miami twice for their only two ACC wins. So, there could be hope yet … VT’s zone is aggravating, but I don’t think they have the firepower to keep up with us should that matchup come to fruition.

    A loss tonight and facing FSU doesn’t sound much better. That would probably be a toss up at best. Oh well, let’s just control what we can control and win the games put forth to us :)

    I am thankful that the chances of facing Maryland again are slim at best. Even though I would love sending them to the B1G with another L, recent history suggests that N.C. State sh*t would take full root in a contest against Maryland.

    Sloppy and lethargic early … we look content to just pass it to Warren and stop moving.

    8-0 run by BC leads to an early GOTT timeout…
    followed by the media TO…

    looks like the kids are perfectly happy to sit back and watch CUZ do it all.. on both ends…

    … exactly what I’ve been alluding to all week…
    Can we put the genies back in the bottle… and play the kind of excellent TEAM ball we have played on occasion.

    Five days of practice should have FIXED THIS!
    But who the F knows anything anymore???

    You simply can’t play WBS and BSW together tonight. Neither can so much as pretend to guard Hanlan.
