Virginia, Duke, Notre Dame and Louisville get the byes.
On Tuesday (man that's fast) #12 BC and #13 Georgia Tech play in Game 1, while #11 Wake and #14 Virginia Tech go in Game 2.
On Wednesday, the winner of game 1 plays # UNC in Game 4, while the Game 2 winner plays #6 Miami in Game 6. Meanwhile, #8 Clemson plays #9 Florida State and #7 NC State will play #10 Pitt.
On Thursday, the Quarterfinals will see the winner of Clemson/FSU will play #1 Virginia, UNC will play #4 Louisville because there's no way in hell that either BC or Georgia Tech is winning two games, the State/Pitt winner will get #2 Duke, while the winner of Wake/Virginia Tech will play Miami.
That sets up a fun matchup for Friday between Virginia and the UNC/Louisville winner and a possible grudge match with the Cardinals after Saturday's upset.
As of now, we'd expect State to beat Pitt, which would give Duke another shot at State after the early upset.
We would expect Miami and Notre Dame to play, although we could see either Wake or Virginia Tech getting on a bit of a roll. And keep in mind that Notre Dame had a tough time taking out Miami in South Bend, winning just 75-70 after being down 12.
