It's Tech vs. Tech; Virginia vs Wake in ACC tourney first round

Here we go -- the first of the tournament pairings. The ACC Tournament gets under way in Greensboro on Thursday. Virginia Tech (11-18, 1-13), seeded 12th, tips off the first round, meeting fifth seed Georgia Tech (21-9, 9-5) at 11 a.m. That's followed by No. 8 Virginia (16-14, 5-9) vs. No. 9 Wake Forest (14-16, 5-9) at 3 p.m., in another first round game.

The Yellow Jackets defeated Tech 78-57 at Cassell on Jan. 27. Virginia defeated the Demon Deacons 73-46 on Feb. 3 at John Paul Jones Arena.

Let's say both Virginia teams win. Then the Hokies would be pitted against No. 4 Maryland in an 11 a.m. quarterfinal on Friday, while Virginia would play defending champion Duke, the top seed at 3 p.m.
