As we sit here at 13-7 (3-3) with 10 games left, I think we have a legitimate shot at getting to the tournament. I'm not going to say it will be easy or likely, but I'm saying it's a possibility. In my mind, we need to go 6-4 in our last 10 to get to 19-11 (9-7) and win 1 maybe 2 games in the ACC tourney.
Here's how it breaks out:
@Miami - MUST WIN
Clemson - MUST WIN
BC - MUST WIN
Miami - MUST WIN
@GT - MUST WIN
What jumps out is we basically have no margin for error. We've got 5 must wins and 5 chances to get marquee wins. We should find out a lot on Wednesday, but if we can scrape out a win in Coral Gables we really set ourselves up nicely. Let's get this W in Miami and see what we can do with a little momentum on Saturday.
Last thing- given where this year started, I think we can all agree that we are happy to even be talking tournament at this point in our season. Barring a complete collapse, we should end the year above .500 and extend the ACC's longest winning season streak to 19 years. That's right, it not Duke and not UNC that has the longest winning season streak, it's us.
