Coastal Division winnows down

← return to D1SCOURSE

Just got into Byrd Stadium after a little foray into Verizon Center earlier today (more on the Georgetown-Drexel game later, or tomorrow – which is technically later).

The ACC’s Coastal Division has sorted itself out nicely today. With North Carolina and Virginia losing and Miami being eliminated because of the Cavaliers’ setback, it’s down to Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech.

The Yellow Jackets are in the clubhouse at 5-3, which of course is the perfect place to be at this juncture. So the scenarios are entirely dependent on the Hokies:

VIRGINIA TECH

Wins the division with victories over Duke and Virginia; Hokies would win a head-to-head tiebreak with Georgia Tech based on an early victory. Virginia Tech would win a three-way division tiebreak under this scenario, with the Hokies (4-1) besting Miami (3-2) and Georgia Tech (2-3).

GEORGIA TECH

Wins the division with one Virginia Tech loss; the Yellow jackets would win a head-to-head tiebreak with Miami based on Thursday’s victory in Atlanta.
