No ACC Title For Coach K
Mike Krzyzewski’s regular season came to an end last Saturday, and his conference tournament ended Saturday night. Both, in losses. Coach K’s illustrious career now comes down to the NCAA tournament, his last chance to win before his retirement.
Inside the Barclay’s Center, Virginia Tech played spoiler as the ACC tourney’s 7 seed, and beat Duke 82-67. Guard, Hunter Cattoor had a career night with 31 points to lead the Hokies to their first ACC conference title. It’s the run Virginia Tech needed to ensure they’d lock in a spot within the NCAA Tournament.
Duke will now await their fate on Selection Sunday. While their regular season, and conference tournament did not go as planned, at 28-6 they will likely be a top 4 seed heading into the big bracket.
