Who won? Boston College defeated NC State, 91-87
Why? Ky Bowman was unconscious in the first half, while NC State probably played one of their worst halves of the season. They couldn’t complete the comeback in the second half.
GIF: State fans until the selection show on Sunday:
What people are talking about? Will NC State still make the tournament? ESPN is saying this dropped their chances of making the tournament to 3.4% per BPI, which we think is pretty outlandish. This probably hurt their seeding and they will more than likely end up on the 10-11 seed line.
What should people be talking about? We get to enjoy another day of watching Ky Bowman and Jerome Robinson. Any time you have two guards that can score at any time in a tournament setting like this, watch out.
What’s next? Boston College advances to face Clemson in the ACC Tournament Quarterfinals. NC State awaits their NCAA seeding.
Since the ACC tournament expanded to 5 rounds, no team has ever won on the opening day of the tournament and followed it up with a win on Day 2.
Boston College looking to do that.
