Notre Dame (11-20, 3-17 ACC) enters the tournament as the No. 14 seed, and will face off against No. 11 Virginia Tech (18-13, 8-12 ACC) in a matchup that features teams going in two different directions. After starting the season 5-0, the Fighting Irish have been in free fall, and went 2-12 over their final 14 regular season games. Things are beginning to look up for the Hokies, who put themselves in an early-season hole thanks to a seven-game losing streak in December and January before playing well in conference play and closing the regular season on a two-game winning streak to secure the 11 seed. Last year, the Hokies won the ACC Tournament as a No. 7 seed, becoming the lowest seed to win the tournament title.
The two teams met once this year, with the Hokies picking up a 93-87 win in South Bend. Virginia Tech forward Grant Basile had his best game of the year in the matchup, tallying 33 points and seven rebounds. The matchup was also a career game for Norte Dame forward Nate Laszewski, as he recorded 33 points on 12-of-17 shooting from the field.
