Winning streaks set the better teams apart.

The top four finishers in the regular season, the top four seeds in the ACC Tournament, were the only conference squads that amassed double-figure winning streaks.

Virginia, which finished 28-2 and 17-1 in the league, had the top run of consecutive victories with 15 from mid-December through early February. It’s worth noting that just four teams -- Clemson, UNC,UVa, and 13-18 Georgia Tech -- enjoyed their best win skeins over a span that included ACC competition.

Even so, Tech’s four-game winning streak was tied for the most modest in the league with Pitt, which failed to capture a victory in league action. The Panthers were also the sole ACC team to finish with five defeats.
